Making an educated treatment decision begins with the stage, or progression, of the disease. The stage of leukemia is one of the most important factors in evaluating treatment options. Every three minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer and Leukemia strikes males and females of all ages and all races. It does not discriminate!

(all the savings that they had) are now unable to afford even the regular treatment of AKU (MR# 206-68-75) so they have shifted her to JPMC where her condition is getting worse.
We need to raise around USD 39000 to save this precious life.
Knowing that your loved one is suffering from a disease as dangerous as Cancer is heart-wrenching and knowing that you can’t do a lot to save them is another form of being helpless.
As any person with cancer knows, a cancer diagnosis also affects family members and friends. Sometimes, the complex feelings and lifestyle changes caused by cancer and its treatment become as overwhelming for others in your life as they are for you. Understanding the potential changes in the way you relate to specific family members and friends may help you take steps to grow healthy, mutually supportive relationships during this challenging time.
Let’s try and raise funds for Yumna! We can contribute as much as we can and save a life!
