She needs to undergo a bone marrow transplant soon, which will cost her 18 lakh rupees. She needs your support to fund her treatment and to ensure her life is saved.
"Nagamani has been a fighter all her life"Since a young age, Nagamani has been owning up the responsibility of her family on her shoulder. Her father was also a farmer and she grew up with extremely limited resources, working on farmlands helping her mother and her father with rice cultivation. To ensure she is able to make more money she even works as a labor in other farms.
Her life has been full of struggles and much sorrow. Her mother passed away 7 years ago, which left her father lonely and made him fall into a depression. Since then she has been taking care of her father and helped him move on with his life.
Nagamani's husband suffers from fits(Seizures) has to be constantly looked after, he is unable to work and move around much. Most of the days he is bedridden in addition to this she also needs to take care of her two young children despite so many people to look after she continues work hard in her farm and make a living out of it.
"Even when she was suffering from cancer she had to look after her son"Last September Nagamani's younger son had to be admitted urgently for a surgery, due to some brain complications during that time Nagamani was diagnosed with cancer, she had extremely low white blood cell count and had suffered too much water retention in the lungs. She had to undergo a procedure to remove the extra water from lungs during the same time when her son was admitted. Despite recovering from the procedure she used to take care of her son and even travel from her village Malkapuram to the hospital in Vijayawada.

She was his source of inspiration to get a job as a software engineer in an IT firm.She has single handily managed to get her children's schooling, managed her husband's medical expenses and taken care of their ancestral farmland.
"While she is now bedridden she still asks about my marriage plans and wishes to see me get married soon"- RameshHer children Saiteja(10) and Navdeep (7) miss seeing their mom healthy and working and have lost interest in in studies and going to school.
