Shabana's strength saved her daughter's life
Shabana had a difficult life, an unsupportive husband and no proper home. She struggled to make ends meet. Her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Aliya was her only hope in life.
Her life fell apart when Aliya was diagnosed with Will’s Tumor, a type of kidney cancer that was caused because she was malnourished. Her husband abandoned them when he found out about Aliya.
Shabana was left to take care of her daughter alone. She did not understand the treatment Aliya needed and had no income to provide for her.
Cuddles helped Shabana by enrolling her in the monthly ration program. This program gave Shabana a standard package of rations every month. They also gave meals and nutrition supplements to her daughter in the hospital. This steady supply of nutrition helped Aliya’s treatment work effectively on her body and today she is cancer-free!
Close to 90% of children with cancer who are from poor families are malnourished at diagnosis. Nutrition is key during treatment of cancer. Having proper meals or supplements while being treated gives children the strength needed to undergo the treatment.
