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.

 

CASE STUDY 2 : HEMANTH WITH ACUTE MYELIOD LEUKAMIA

Name                           : Hemanth

Age                              : 7 Months

Diagnosis                    : AML

Address                       :  Khammam (dist)

Family History:

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.

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.

    IMPACT Project Report - Feb 2017 to Apr 2017

    Project Name:  Run a 85-bed child cancer ward in India

    Project ID:  19108

    CASE STUDY 1 - Successful treatment of Sanjana – As told by her mother

    Name               :           Sanjana       

     Age                 :           7 Years Female

    Diagnosis         :           Wilms Tumor

    My name is Geetha. I am the mother of Sanjana. My daughter was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor in the year 2014. We are from Hyderabad. Sanjana is our second daughter. She is an active and bright student and the love of our family.

    One day my child was suffering with stomach pain. Then we consulted with a private hospital and took medicines as prescribed. The doctor examined the child and advised CT Scans. The doctor found a tumor inside the stomach and referred to Niloufer Hospital. At Niloufer Hospital, doctors examined the child and saw all the old reports and referred us to MNJ Cancer Hospital. We were worried, as to why Niloufer doctors referred us to a cancer hospital. We visited MNJ Cancer Hospital with a lot of worry and fear. We consulted Dr. Sudha Sinha, the pediatric medical oncologist in the medical oncology department. She spoke to us pleasantly and eased out concerns. She evaluated the reports, examined the child and she gave us a lot of hope, that our child would be cured.

                            My child Sanjana was diagnosed with Wilms tumor. After completion of proper investigations per Dr. Sudha Sinha’s advice and with the guidance of Impact counselors, we admitted our daughter in the pediatric ward run by Impact. Impact counselors explained the entire process of treatment like chemotherapy, role of surgery and importance of radiation. Then they explained chemotherapy schedule, side effects of chemotherapy and prognosis. I still remember how worried I was concerning my child’s situation and the disease. Impact counselors gave me a lot of hope, support and put us at ease. I felt so relieved and happy when my daughter completed the chemotherapy, surgery and radiation successfully. Impact assured that they will take responsibility for the entire treatment, required nutrition and medical needs.

                            My daughter Sanjana is finally cured after one year of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation with the help of Impact. Psychological and financial support was provided by Impact team. We never lacked a thing after getting her admitted into Impact ward. We feel lucky to have admitted her in the Impact ward. We are very happy to see my daughter today. I am very much thankful to the Impact team and Dr. Sudha Sinha who have a new hope of life to my child. I can never forget their help and support. “May god always bless, for helping needy people like us”.

     

    CASE STUDY 2 –  Treatment in progress for HARSHINI

     Name                           : Harshini

    Diagnosis                     : Ewing’s Sarcoma

    Address                       : H.No: 4-130 Kotha Lingala, Khammam.

    Harshini is six years old. She is from Kotha Lingala Mandal of Khammam district. Her father works as a daily wage labor and mother is a house wife. Harshini doesn’t have any siblings. They hail from a financially poor family.

    Medical History: In the beginning the child was unable to pass urine and suffered with stomach pain and swelling. So parents immediately consulted with Mamatha Hospital at Khammam district. There the doctors saw the patient condition and suggested an ultrasound. After scanning, they diagnosed that the child as suffering with piles. So doctors gave medications for three days. But the child was not cured and then the parents consulted Venkateshwara Hospital. The doctors suggested for some more investigations like CBP, X-ray and well as urine test. After that the doctors were unable to identify the actual cause. So they referred to Srilekha Hospital, wherein the doctors there also suggested same types of investigations. Here the doctors identified a tumor in the stomach. Then the doctors referred the child to Niloufer Hospital which is a government hospital located at Hyderabad. The parents were not satisfied with the treatment at that government hospital. Immediately parents took the child to Rainbow private hospital in Hyderabad. There the doctors admitted the child and did some more investigations like biopsy and CBP tests, where they confirmed that child is suffering with cancer. They quoted a huge amount for treatment. But the parents could not afford that much money. So they went to Basvatharaka Cancer Hospital. The doctors after seeing old reports, suggested for BMA and with the help of BMA report they confirmed that child is suffering with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a type of cancer. The doctors referred them to MNJ Cancer Hospital. MNJ doctors saw the previous reports of other Hospitals. MNJ Doctors suggested CBP, LFT/RFT and FNAC tests and diagnosed the condition as cancer. Doctors explained the prognosis and treatment process to her parents and started the treatment.

    Present Status:

    After the explanation of prognosis and treatment process, parents were worried whether the child would survive the disease. She, being their only one daughter only aggravated their concerns. Presently child is in a stable condition. Both parents are attending to the child and serving as a good support system for the child’s treatment.
