Vennela has thalassemia major, a rare blood disorder due to which her body produces lesser-than-normal amounts of hemoglobin. She becomes anemic as a result, which is deadly. Her life expectancy and quality of life will be negatively affected by this disorder if she does not get an urgent bone marrow transplant.
Blood transfusions every two weeks are a temporary fix for her conditionEver since she was a child, Vennela has been undergoing blood transfusions every month. Earlier she did not know why she had to go the hospital, and why the doctors were puncturing her skin with needles. But as she grew older, she became aware of her condition.
Currently, she has to get blood transfusions every two weeks, as her blood count drops more frequently than before. But these transfusions are no longer enough to sustain her – she will need a transplant soon.
With no parents or relatives to worry about her, Vennela is suffering all aloneThese days, Vennela cries herself to sleep thinking about how she is all alone in this battle. She has nobody - not even a distant relative - to enquire about her health. Her treatment will cost INR 30 lakhs, and this exorbitant amount needs to be arranged within a few days or her life could be in danger. At this tender age, Vennela is having to face what is probably her life’s toughest battle – on her own.
