Ridhi was just 16 months old, when she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a form of blood cancer, where abnormal white blood cells grow rapidly, accumulate in the bone marrow and disrupt the production of normal blood cells.
The parents were told that Ridhi needed a bone marrow transplant. Ridhi's father turned out to be match as a donor for his little girl, and the transplant was soon completed. What should have been the end of Ridhi's battle with cancer did not seem anywhere on the horizon – her cancer soon relapsed, and she needed to be rushed to the hospital to be admitted again. And she required another bone marrow transplant. Her father once again acted as a donor for Ridhi and the second bone marrow transplant was completed. Ridhi is soon making great progress in her recovery and is getting ready to put behind this chapter in her life.
Ridhi's body is already weakened by the multiple procedures, treatments, and medication. However, one look at her cheerful face, and one wouldn't think that she is ill in any way. Her sunny personality belies the battles she has been fighting.
Ridhi's parents have exhausted all their savings on Ridhi's multiple treatments. They have been financially burdened with the medical costs. While they have received help for Ridhi's previous treatments, they need help from kind donors again. Ridhi continues to brighten everyone's day with her smile, but she is in severe pain every day. With a bit of your help, Ridhi can beat her cancer and GVHD, and live a life she has never known – a life free of diseases.
