Chemotherapy has made this child fragile and exhausted
She could not endure the pain of chemo, it worsened her healthSamruddhi was immediately given chemotherapy. The little one could not bear the pain, soon she got a high fever and her blood count dropped drastically. Her body was reacting to the intensive treatment. She started vomiting again and had terrible stomach pain.

But the nightmare continued for the family when she developed Neutropenia - a condition which causes a breakdown of the immune system leading to a number of infections.
