At 10 Year old, My cousin Sunita, was diagnosed with Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdiod Tumor (ATRT). An extremely rare, very difficult to treat pediatric brain tumor. The tumor has been fully resected and there are no other tumors present in her brain or on her spine. Her spinal fluid is negative for cancer cells. We are very hopefully of a positive outcome. Sunita has already completed 2 rounds of chemotherapy, 1 stem cell harvest, and 2 stem cell rescues. She still has 3 more round of chemotherapy and stem cell rescue and we plan to start Proton-Beam Therapy in January. Sunita has endured a few setbacks, like a subdural hematoma, shunt revision, and a PICC reinsertion. She is a fighter! Sunita has a long road ahead, but we have faith in God that she will survive and thrive.
We've created this website to keep friends and family updated. We will update as we go through testing and treatment. We appreciate your prayers, support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.
We are truly asking for prayers! We also will be experiencing large medical bills and Her Mother will be on unpaid leave from work unless leave is donated from other employees. If you want to help out financially you can through this website. If you still want to help and can't financially, we ask that you donate blood in her honor.
