Khushbu

Month and Year of Birth: March 2019

Khushbu is from West Bengal. She was just 5 months old when parents noticed a white reflex in her left eye in a few pictures taken. In two months’ time, a white layer was formed on the eyeball. Doctors first suspected it as glaucoma. MRI and scan were done, she was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma. The family was in Bangalore for her treatment when Government announced lockdown to contain Covid 19. They were stranded in Bangalore for 2 months. As a positive note, she could complete the 6th cycle of Chemotherapy with out any delay as they stayed near the treating hospital. Tumor subsided and she is on 2 months follow up. They reached their hometown on 23rd May and hopefully they should be able to come back to Bangalore on time for the next follow up.
