“My little girl always used to smile. Ever since she fell sick, I’ve only heard her cry- I’m forgetting the sound of her laughter,” Sulaikha says tearfully. In her mother’s lap, little Fathima twisted and turned, struggling against the constant prodding by the plethora of needles and tubes in her body.
The 1-year-old baby has been suffering from Down Syndrome and was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Her parents, Sulaikha and Sharafudheen, are at the end of their rope. They have nowhere to turn to to help their baby.
“I never imagined our lives would turn out like this. Despite coming from poor backgrounds and having little to no money, our children’s happiness and love had always been enough to keep us content,” Sharafudheen says.
Unfortunately, his family has been through only pain and suffering for the past few months.It all started when little Fathima began to fall sick frequently after her first birthday. Fathima was diagnosed with Down Syndrome just after she was born. Sulaikha and Sharafudheen were devastated by the news, but their love for their baby far outweighed any struggles that lay ahead.
“We were ready to do whatever it took for Fathima. Working extra hours, staying up all night- it didn’t matter. All we ever wanted was for Fathima to have a happy life,” Sulaikha says.When Fathima’s high fevers persisted, the couple immediately worried about her health.
They took her to the local doctor who prescribed some medicines and the usual remedies.
Yet, Fathima’s health only got worse. She started displaying symptoms of fatigue in addition to the fever.
They realised the local doctor’s treatment was ineffective and grew more and more afraid. Thinking that their baby’s illness was something far more serious, they took Fathima to the hospital.
Over there, the 1-year-old was diagnosed with blood cancer.
Her treatment was started immediately. Sulaikha and Sharafudheen had hardly had any time to recover from the news that their baby’s life was in danger before they were hit with a second blow.
Despite their best efforts, they’ve not even been able to collect a fraction of the amount needed for Fathima’s treatment. Now, they’re forced to watch helplessly as their baby girl suffers in pain every day.
