Manisha Narayan, 19, who is fighting for her life is suffering from acute myeloid leukemia [AML] a cancer that starts inside the bone marrow, the soft tissue inside bones that helps form blood cells.
The cancer grows from cells that would normally turn into white blood cells.
She recently graduated at the top of her beauty school class and had secured herself a great job as a beautician.
Family supporter and administrator of the ‘Help Manisha Campaign,’ Alex Bee, said the family was shocked to learn that their daughter was suffering from cancer.
“Imagine getting the news you have cancer, more specifically acute myeloid leukemia. Manisha is a happy young woman, beautiful inside and out and genuinely loves life,” Mrs Bee said.
The treatment is expensive, she said and they are not even sending her to Australia or New Zealand as that would be three times the cost.
“It’s going to be a long and painful treatment plan. We are desperately trying to raise funds to get Manisha to India where she’ll have the opportunity to get the appropriate treatment and beat the disease. We’re not asking you to finance the whole treatment.
We just want some help. So that’s why we’ve set a reasonable goal in order to keep the fees low.”
Her elder brother, Shivneel Munith Narayan, said he did not believe that her sister had cancer when he was informed of it.
“I just couldn’t believe it because she is my only sister and was still young and she never got sick.”
Donors can put funds straight into her bank account.
