Do you know how many people are thankful for you?

Dear friend, 

You have no idea how many people are thankful that you exist.

Just this year, you helped provide nine cycles of chemotherapy for six-month old Fathima to cure her eye cancer.  When she arrived at Aravind, we discovered that she had cardiac problems, so she was transferred to the ICU at Meenakshi Mission Hospital to complete her treatment.  Then, there was 11-month old Aryan from Chittoor, whose father works as a day laborer in an aluminum fabrication company.  You helped with the costs of Aryan's surgeries and follow-up chemo.  Also, Chinnamaruthu, aged two, who has Tetraology of Fallot, a rare congenital heart disease.  He had to be examined under anesthesia with all the necessary medical support systems.  These three children and many more children and adults received care completely free of cost, thanks to you!  

So far, in 2022, you have helped 38 new patients with eye cancer, provided 8766 follow visits, and given genetic testing to 81 people, 

You haven't met any of these people, yet you've made a huge impact on their lives. So, during this season of giving thanks, we are very, very thankful for you.

Without you, many people would lose their sight for no good reason. Thank you for helping us to eliminate needless blindness and to fulfill the mission of our founder, Dr. Venkataswamy.

Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season,
Donna Campbell, Executive Director
