Nandini - Retinoblastoma Patient
Nandini - Retinoblastoma Patient

Aravind is internationally renowned for its self-sustaining model of compassionate care – no one is turned away on the basis of ability to pay.  Your donations make it possible for us to help those who need extensive and long-term treatment and to provide food and housing for patients and their families who must travel many miles to reach an Aravind hospital. Thanks to your generous donations, to Aravind Eye Care System supported the following patient care projects:

Ring of Hope Fund:   Twelve children suffering from devastating eye cancers received treatment at Aravind completely free of cost, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery, as well as room and board for the patient and family. 

 2 year old Nandhini, was brought to Aravind, when she was unable to open her right eye and had been waking-up crying for last ten daysNandhini lost her sight in the right eye a year ago, and when the doctors examined her swollen red eye they discovered that the child had developed retinoblastoma in the right eye and the counselor advised the parents that if the eye was not removed, the cancer may spread to other parts and endanger the child’s life itself eventually. So it was inevitable to remove the eye to save the child. After the parents consent the diseased eye was removed Nandhini was treated free of cost with the support of your donations.  Now, after 3 cycles of completed chemotherapy Nandhini’s parents are happy that their child’s life is out of danger.

Most Aravind Hospitals and Community Centers are located in different parts of Tamil Nadu, India, with central office in Madurai.
