JAYACHANDANA
JAYACHANDANA

STORY OF A BRAVE YOUNG GIRL

Name                          :           JayaChandana

Age                              :           14Years / Female

Diagnosis                   :           AML

Address                      :           Rajamundry

                                    I am the father of JayaChandana and my wife is 43 years old. My daughter was diagnosed with AML four years ago in 2013. We are from Rajahmundry. Jayachandana is our second child studying in 10th class who is an active child and a bright student in school and very inclined towards education. We have an elder son studying Intermediate at Sri Chaitanya College.

                                    About four months back, my child was suffered from severe fever. We took her to the nearby RMP doctor and got an injection for the fever. But after three days, the fever recurred. When we were at a relative’s marriage, suddenly she has become very sick. Then we took her to The Rajahmundry private Hospital. There doctors observed child and followed up with a dengue test which showed normal results. They did complete blood picture test, which showed very low counts of platelets and HB/high counts of WBC. There the doctors suspected the child with some kind of blood disease referred our child to The MNJ Cancer Hospital at Hyderabad for further investigations. We were in a state of shock as we approached MNJ Hospital and met Dr. Sudha Sinha. The doctors analyzed all the previous reports of our child and advised BMA test to know the diagnosis. After the outcome of result Dr. Sudha Sinha explained the diagnosis of AML to me and my wife. She consoled us and started the treatment. This was followed by 4 months of treatment by MNJ and counselling by Impact.

                        Impact counselors explained the process of treatment (Chemotherapy) and how it cures the disease of child and provided awareness about the side effects of chemotherapy. I still remember the situation of my child how she was and how we received full support from Impact – blood, finances for travel and medicines as required. They stood by us during the negative situations. In these situations, we were strengthened by the kind words of counselors. We were happy when my daughter completed the treatment successfully. When we were unable to afford the treatment, Impact assured us that they would take responsibility for the entire treatment and need of nutritional support etc.

                        Finally our daughter has completed the treatment through the support of everyone. I thank all the Impact team and doctors who gave treatment and cured her. Now we are in follow-up routines for next 4 years. Impact fills the needs of children from low psycho-social status families and brings brightness in many children’s lives like our child.  Thank you.

Lasya
Lasya

CASE STUDY 1 : STORY OF LASYA

Name                            :  Lasya

Age                              :  4 Years

Diagnosis                    : Wilims Tumor

Address                       : Kakinada, East Godavari Dist

Family History:

Lasya is daughter of Mr Subramanyam. She is 4 years old. Lasya’s mother is 21 years old and father is 25 years old. Both work as agriculture labour. Their whole family is dependent on  agriculture only. Lasya is their only child.

Medical History:

Initially Lasya was suffering with not passing urine and motion properly. After a few

Days, the parents identified the problem and immediately showed her to a private hospital in Kakinada. In the Kakinada private, the child underwent all investigations like CT scan, X-Ray, Ultra Sound, CBP etc. After the investigations reports, doctors found that child had tumor in the stomach. Doctors advised that the family that child should undergo surgery. The doctors removed the tumor from her stomach. After completion of surgery, doctors referred to MNJ Cancer Hospital in the Hyderabad. In the MNJ Cancer Hospital, we did all the investigations and finally confirmed that child had cancer (Wilims Tumor).

After confirmation of diagnosis, doctors started the treatment for the cancer (Wilims Tumor). Lasya has completed her chemotherapy treatment successfully. Now she is doing her 3 months follow up visits, post the treatment.

Psycho Social Issues:

In the beginning Lasya’s parents were worried about the child’s situation and scared about the disease. They were going through a lot of anxiety about the child and counselors played a key role in convincing them about the child’s prognosis. They face financial hardships because they had spent a lot of money for treatment, during the child’s treatment in private hospitals.

IMPACT played a vital role in their family- where they were guided for the proper treatment by the counselors and all team members in the hospital.

Future Plan

Now Lasya’s parents are very happy because Lasya has completed treatment successfully without any delay. Her mother is happy that the child stands cured.

Hemanth is a 7 months old. He is from Khammam district. His father is studying PG B.Ed and his mother is in 10th class. Family depends on agriculture only. Hemanth is the first child of his parents. Their financial background is stable.

Medical History:

Initially Hemanth was suffering with fever and visible patches on the body. His parents

 took him to a local RMP doctor. The doctor could not diagnose his problem. So he referred the kid to another private hospital in Khammam.

The children’s hospital did all the investigations. After the investigations, doctors suspected cancer. So the doctors talked to Hemanth’s parents personally and advised them to go and take treatment at MNJ Hospital.

But Hemanth parents took the child to Suraksha Hospital. At Suraksha Hospital too, they were advised to go and take treatment at MNJ Cancer Hospital. After all investigations at MNJ, it was confirmed that Hemanth had AML.

Psycho Social Issues:

Father felt that the mother was unable to understand anything. So he refused to inform her about cancer, and hid things from her. But Counsellor educated the mother regarding the disease. Counselors found that Hemanth’s mother could accept the situation and was able to handle it.

IMPACT always feels that both parents should be educated with the prognosis of the child. Slowly parents come to accept the truth and look to fight the disease.

We were happy until my child was diagnosed with Cancer.

On 8thJuly 2016, she felt pain in her leg and was unable to walk to school. We consulted several doctors in Ranga Reddy district. Finally she was diagnosed with Osterosacroma of left upper leg. Initially she was suffering with severe pain and developed weakness in her left leg. Once we came to know my daughter has Cancer, we immediately shifted her to MNJ Cancer Hospital.

Dr. Sudha and Dr. Jayathi attended the case and started treatment in IMPACT ward at MNJ. My daughter had lot of side effect on first cycle of chemo therapy. Dr.Sudha was really concerned about my child’s situation and requested IMPACT to buy specialized medicine to treat my child. IMAPCT Counselors were continuously following up with us when we were at home. Dr. Sudha revealed that my child’s situation is not improving and referred to Surgical Oncology for their suggestion.

Doctors in Surgical Oncology department recommended Amputation of left leg to stop further deterioration. With tears in eyes and a heavy heart we agreed for surgery and amputation.
