STORY OF A BRAVE YOUNG GIRL
Name : Jaya
Age : 14Years / Female
Diagnosis : AML
Address : Rajamundry
I am the father of Jaya and my wife is 43 years old. My daughter was diagnosed with AML four years ago in 2013. We are from Rajahmundry. Jaya is our second child studying in 10th class who is an active child and a bright student in school and very inclined towards education. We have an elder son studying Intermediate at Sri Chaitanya College.
About four months back, my child was suffered from severe fever. We took her to the nearby RMP doctor and got an injection for the fever. But after three days, the fever recurred. When we were at a relative’s marriage, suddenly she has become very sick. Then we took her to The Rajahmundry private Hospital. There doctors observed child and followed up with a dengue test which showed normal results. They did complete blood picture test, which showed very low counts of platelets and HB/high counts of WBC. There the doctors suspected the child with some kind of blood disease referred our child to The MNJ Cancer Hospital at Hyderabad for further investigations. We were in a state of shock as we approached MNJ Hospital and met Dr. Sudha Sinha. The doctors analyzed all the previous reports of our child and advised BMA test to know the diagnosis. After the outcome of result Dr. Sudha Sinha explained the diagnosis of AML to me and my wife. She consoled us and started the treatment. This was followed by 4 months of treatment by MNJ and counselling by Impact.
Impact counselors explained the process of treatment (Chemotherapy) and how it cures the disease of child and provided awareness about the side effects of chemotherapy. I still remember the situation of my child how she was and how we received full support from Impact – blood, finances for travel and medicines as required. They stood by us during the negative situations. In these situations, we were strengthened by the kind words of counselors. We were happy when my daughter completed the treatment successfully. When we were unable to afford the treatment, Impact assured us that they would take responsibility for the entire treatment and need of nutritional support etc.
Finally our daughter has completed the treatment through the support of everyone. I thank all the Impact team and doctors who gave treatment and cured her. Now we are in follow-up routines for next 4 years. Impact fills the needs of children from low psycho-social status families and brings brightness in many children’s lives like our child. Thank you.
