One day, when Aaliya got home from school, she complained that she wasn’t feeling well and looked very weak and pail. As a mother, I tried to make her feel better by comforting her and told her that she would be fine. But this began to occur frequently. Whenever Aaliya returned from school, she usually had something unpleasant to say about her health. We took her to the doctor, and he suggested that we should get some tests done. We were shocked on being told that she had acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood cancer. Accepting this news was a really difficult experience for us as parents. Aaliya was only 13 years old when she was with cancer.
She is currently receiving treatment at the Rajeev Gandhi Hospital in Rohini, Delhi, where she is making a remarkable recovery. After eight months her treatment is now over. I found out about the YouWeCan Foundation from the wonderful Dr. Gauri Kapoor, who is currently taking care of Aaliya. She informed me that YouWeCan Foundation will do all they can to help us in our time of need. Honestly speaking , we have had a very good experience with this foundation.
When we were in such a difficult situation, they supported us. Aaliya is now 14 and is enrolled in the tenth grade. She takes great pride and pleasure in reading books and discovering new things. She aspires to become a doctor someday so that she can assist others who are dealing with cancer in the same way that she was. We are really grateful to the foundation for its support, and I have no doubt that Aaliya will be able to beat his illness both with the help of the foundation and her own strong will.
