Rithikasri and her big brother Diwakar say thanks!

Rithikisari and her big brother say thanks!
Rithikisari and her big brother say thanks!

Rithikasri is a beautiful, sweet-natured child.  She loves to run after her big brother, Diwakar.  She first came to Aravind’s Orbit Clinic when she was 12 days old for an eye check-up. Her parents had been told to have her eyes checked regularly, because her brother had retinoblastoma – eye cancer -- three years earlier.  One of his eyes had to be removed.  Rithika’s mother had also had retinoblastoma when she was a child, and has an artificial eye.  Rithika was lucky, and Aravind doctors were able to save her vision in both eyes, thanks to early diagnosis and treatment – and your donations. Today Rithikasri and her brother are both healthy and cancer-free!  

As a mother of three daughters, I can easily imagine the heartache of hearing that my child has cancer.  And,
equally, the hope inspired by someone making a donation to provide treatment that I couldn’t possibly afford on my own.  A full course of treatment for retinoblastoma – surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, blood transfusions, custom prosthesis, counseling – costs $1000.  The average wage in India is $2 a day.  Your donations are making a mother very happy. Thank you!

This Mother’s Day, I am making a donation to pay tribute to the mothers and their children who come to Aravind -- 912 and counting!  Please give to your favorite cause and send a tribute card to the mothers in your life during Global Giving's Mother's Day Tribute Campaign. 

Thank you for all your support and Happy Mother's Day!

Warmest regards, Donna Campbell, Executive Director, Aravind Eye Foundation
