Every monthly donation helps children suffering from cancer like Reshma with nutrition supplements
10-year-old Reshma suffers from Ewings Sarcoma, cancer near the bones. She had to undergo chemotherapy and bone surgery but as she was severely malnourished her body couldn't withstand the strong treatment. The cancer left her with uneven legs, no strength in her hands and unable to walk properly even with a walker. After being in the hospital for over 4 months and the illness affecting her, she became depressed and withdrawn.
She was referred to Cuddles with an urgent need to improve the nutritional status. Continued counseling and a high-calorie protein-rich diet was provided to help Reshma build the strength to accept the strong cancer treatment.
She has now gained weight. She keeps herself busy with arts and crafts during her time in the hospital. She has also begun to engage with people by proudly showing them her art.
All it takes is care and a little nutritional support to give children like Reshma the strength and hope to fight the hard battle they are fighting.
