Month and Year of Birth: June 2013

Payal’s parents noticed a white reflex in her right eye in Feb 2018 but could not consult a doctor immediately due to financial problems. Two months later they consulted a Government doctor who suspected it to be a tumor. CT scan was done, and she was diagnosed with unilateral Retinoblastoma.

Her right eye has been enucleated immediately due to the presense of an advanced tumor and a custom-made prosthetic eye has been implanted. Frequent visits to the hospital for the treatment hindered her education last year but she is all set to enjoy her schooling this year.
