Sreeja has spent the majority of her childhood attending to the brain tumor, being constantly fatigue has limited her to certain activities she can participate in. Sreeja is also on a strict diet of specific foods she can eat. Sreeja needs your support to return back to her normal happy childhood.
Quite recently, on the 12th January Sreeja and her family flew to their home country in Hyderabad, South India. As soon as the family landed, Sreeja began to lose her vision and balance. Sreeja was immediately taken directly from the airport to the hospital. Unfortunately, Sreeja's condition worsened on arrival to the hospital, as she began vomiting and having seizures. The symptoms were so sudden and escalated so quickly, the family is currently seeking urgent medical attention in India.
The recommended treatment for Sreeja is to undergo Proton Therapy in Germany as the therapy is not available in the UK. Proton Therapy is a type of radiation treatment that uses protons to treat cancer; a proton is a positively charged particle. At high energy, protons can destroy cancer cells. Similarly, Proton Therapy is a type of external-beam radiation therapy and it painlessly delivers radiation through the skin from a machine outside the body.
However, the cost of this treatment is £80,000; which is a substantial amount for the family to provide, due to their expenditures on various surgeries and treatments for Sreeja. Sreeja is currently in a critical condition and urgently needs your help to gain access to this therapy. The family is in a difficult position as they are now unable to return to their home in the UK due to Sreeja's condition.
Any funds raised will be put towards the Proton Therapy.
We ask for your help as this is truly an urgent appeal from Sreeja and her family in this desperate need for treatment. Please help support Sreeja, no amount is too small and we will forever appreciate all help received for Sreeja's cause.
