Family History:

Parvin is 12 years old girl. She is studying in 3rd class. She has one younger sister. Her father is an auto driver and mother is a beedi worker (Tobacco).

Medical History:

Parvin is very active girl and belongs to a small beautiful family.

One day she developed fever for which her mother gave her paracetamol tablets for reducing the fever. She responded to the tablet and was feeling good for few days. After few days she started bleeding from the mouth. By seeing this her parents got frightened and took her to a private hospital. The doctors in the hospital referred to another super speciality hospital for BMA test. There the doctors by seeing the BMA report confirmed that it is Blood Cancer ALL. And the doctors referred to MNJ Cancer Hospital.

Psycho-Social Issues:

When it got confirmed that Parvin is suffering from Blood Cancer, initially her mother got afraid about the disease and the treatment.

Her mother’s heart filled with deep sorrow was shocked by knowing that her daughter is suffering from Blood Cancer. At that time she was not in position to accept the truth. Doctors in their home town explained to her mother about the disease and treatment. Doctors advised her mother to go to MNJ Cancer Hospital for better treatment. From there they came to MNJ Cancer Hospital. Now Parvin has successfully completed her six months treatment in IMPACT / MNJ.

With these six months of cancer treatment and completion of her monthly checkups, Parvin’s mother is now very confident and hopeful that the child is going to do well in the future. It is expected that after three years Parvin will be mostly cured.

Parvin’s father was not told that she is suffering from cancer because he is a very sensitive person and could not have taken the bad news about his daughter.

Current Status :

Parvin is out of danger and she is very happy that she can go back to school and her parents are also very happy to see their daughter cheerful and out of danger.
