“My little angel has already lost one eye and we do not want her vision to go completely. My
husband works day and night so we can afford this treatment but still are failing to gather the
amount that is needed. Please help me save my daughter's eye sight.” -
Aradhaya Lokhande, a 4- year-old girl suffering from Bilateral Retinoblastoma. Her father, Mr.
Samadhan Lokhande is the only breadwinner of the family and earns up to Rs. 200/- per day.
Aradhaya, along with her mother, younger sister and father lives in Pune, Maharashtra.
When Aradhaya was six months old, her left pupil started to look white in colour and she
suffered from constant severe cold and coughs. Worried, her parents took her to a local hospital.
A CT scan discovered that Aradhaya is suffering from Bilateral Retinoblastoma. It is a tumor of
eyes. Aradhaya and her mother used to travel to Coimbatore at SRI Ramakrishna Hospital for
better treatment, as she was suggested 6 cycles of chemotherapy. For a couple of years, the
chemotherapy showed good results but during lockdown, they couldn't travel to Coimbatore.
This worsened her condition and the doctors suggested an eye removal surgery.
It was detected that Aradhaya's right eyes has tumor too and another 6 cycles of chemotherapy is
suggested along with a Bone scan and Radiotherapy to treat the cancer. The estimated cost of the
treatment is Rs 1,54,000/- (Rupees One Lakh Fifty Four Thousand Only). Aradhaya's mother
used to work as a housekeeping staff in a local hospital in Pune but was fired as she took
frequent leaves to take care of her daughter. With time, medical expenses have drained their
savings and they need your help to afford their daughter's treatment.
