“Yes, I had to leave my full-time job. It’s not possible for me to go to work, my daughters need me. I started working part-time, but it’s barely enough for food and their medicines. Despite everything, I never gave up. But now...what will I do? - Azhar, father
Azhar was told that Zoya and Zara needed a bone marrow transplant to survive, because the blood transfusions they were getting weren’t enough. Zoya was lucky and got a matched donor, and Azhar did everything he could to afford it. He was able to get her the bone marrow transplant but her fight continues - she needs intensive post-operative care and treatment to fully recover. Zara, unfortunately, still doesn’t have a matched donor.
"I can’t even afford the 3 lakhs more I need to save Zoya, to complete her treatment. Even if Zara does get a matching donor, how will I save her? I fear I will lose them both... all because I can’t afford to save them.”
Zoya is now 4. She doesn’t even realise that medicines, injections and staying in the hospital for days are not normal - because it’s the only life she has known. But Zoya can get better, she can fight this disease and have a normal childhood. If only Azhar gets help.
"If I had known earlier that something like a bone marrow transplant could be done, I would have tried to save money all these years, while they were getting blood transfusions. But now I think that even 4 years of saving wouldn't have been enough to afford their treatment. Zoya can make it, but I need help to save her."
Your kind help can save Zoya, and Azhar can then think of saving Zara as well. Without your help these parents will lose all hope.
