Age : 1.6 Year
Disease : Liver Cancer
“As my baby girl clings to my arm and shrieks out of pain, my only wish is to eradicate the disease that has taken hold of her.”
When Ankitha opened her eyes for the first time and looked at me, I felt a new part of me was waking up. I never knew I could love someone so much it hurt.
But as those memories are far away, I struggle to minimize the pain she suffers because of her liver infection. However, try as I might, I am nothing but a bystander in the face of disease as mighty as this.
Her abdomen was swollen massively and she could not breathe properly. She struggled to eat and her skin was turning into a ghastly yellow.
After trying to treat her persistent fevers, we went to the hospital for further checkups. She was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a type of liver cancer.
“I felt my soul leave my body as I came to know of the news. I just could not comprehend my baby’s situation.”
But this is not all, Ankitha has been subjected to all sorts of horrifying and painful medical procedures. A soul so young still, she doesn’t understand why she’s been chained to the hospital beds.
The doctors have stated that she needs Right Hepatectomy – the only surgery that can possibly save her life. But there is a hurdle, we need to raise INR 500000.00 for the surgery and I don’t know how we can possibly do so.
“It’s been nine months since we are running from clinics to hospitals, we have nothing left.”
My husband used to work at a factory. His income was barely enough for us to scrape by with our expenses but the pandemic has stolen even that from us.
We’ve had to mortgage our house for Ankitha’s diagnosis hospitalization costs. We have no means left to pay for her surgery.
“My little child hasn’t even been on this planet for two years and she’s already fighting an illness that might kill her. What kind of world is this? Why is it necessary for my child to be tested in this manner?”
Ankitha’s time is ticking and I’m afraid this disease might leave long-lasting scars on her mental state. I can’t bear to see her suffer any longer.
You are the only hope I have left. Please help me save my little girl. She has yet to experience the joys and sorrows that life brings with it. She’s yet to make a meaningful impact on this enormous world of ours.
Please help my child live. Donate to her surgery so that she could live a better life.
