Jhanvi

Month and Year of Birth: August 2013

Jhanvi was just over 5 months old when she was diagnosed with retinoblastoma and came to Narayana Nethralaya for treatment.

Her father works as a clerk in a bank in Belgaum and her mother is a housewife. The doctor's estimate is that we might need to enucleate 1 eye and put in a false eye, would need several rounds of laser treatment to ablate cancer and also have up to 6 rounds of chemotherapy. MRI and other tests would also be needed to eliminate the possibility of the cancer being spread to other parts as well.

 

The support needed or Jhanvi this first year along would be a little over one lakh Rupees.
