15yrs old Swapna's hope for life

Friends - I(Vishal Kamdar) am initiating this fundraising campaign for a kind initiative taken by my sister-in-law(Parul Sharma) to support her domestic help’s child battle against blood cancer. A 15 year old girl Swapna studying in grade 8; whose mother(Revathi) earns her living as a domestic worker and father(Suryanarayan) - a daily wage earner in Hyderabad, India. Swapna was diagnosed with blood cancer (T-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma NHL - Stage IV) in August2015. Her parents are trying their best to arrange funds to help her beloved daughter. She is being treated at Omega Hospital in Hyderabad, India. Her oncologist believes she has 60-70% chance to pull out of it. The above picture is of Swapna with her mother Revathi during her first chemotherapy session. Her line of treatment consists of 3 phases. First phase of treatment lasted for 2-3 months to which she responded phenomenally well. The cost associated to this was around USD 10,000 (INR 6,00,000/-) with funds accumulated/donated by family, friends, well-wishers. While her second phase of treatment is in progress the funds are drying up and she is in immediate need of USD 10,000 to ensure continuity of phase two of her line of treatment. The duration of second phase is 4-6 months. The third phase would again call for USD 5,000 and would last for two years. Kindly contribute and share the word as every penny of your contribution will help this lovely child fight her battle against blood cancer.
