Giving HANDs needed more ....than Praying lips
As we all know medical care is expensive. Many of us are fortunate to have the financial support or are privy to medical insurance to be able to afford the best in healthcare. However a phenomenally large percentage of the Indian population is not blessed with such luxuries.
Varshini is a young and exuberant 16 year old child who is facing a relapse of B cell leukemia. B cell leukemia is an aggressive blood cancer in which immature white blood cells are produced excessively and found in the bone marrow and blood. It is the most common type of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The silver lining of this type of cancer is that 98% of children go into remission within 3 weeks of treatment, and about 90% of those children will be cured.
But Varshini is so much more than a cancer patient she was a hardworking student until her illness took over with aspirations to work in the aeronautical field. She enjoys coloring, watching movies, holds a violet belt in karate and can not wait to be back to train for her black belt. She loves Tamil movies her favorite actor being Vijay.
Varshini’s mother has not been able to work since her daughter's diagnosis. She was previously a part of a nursing staff. Varshini's father is a quality checker but his income alone is insufficient to deal with the medical bills.
Even the smallest donation could make a huge difference for Varshini. Together with your support, we can help Varshini and her family by providing them a fighting chance at besting the grim odds that they are faced with and helping this young girl get her normal childhood back. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
