I came into this world in a cosy village in Rajasthan, where our simple home overflowed with happiness. Life took a turn when I was four. My family relocated to Delhi in search of a better life in the bustling city. But just as we settled into the city rhythm, a dark cloud loomed over us—I was diagnosed with cancer.
At that age, I didn't grasp the gravity, but the fear in my family's eyes spoke volumes. The hospital became my second home, hosting surgeries and chemotherapy. It was tough, but I never let go. Weak days confined me to bed, and sickness threatened to steal my joy. Yet, there were bright spots when I could play with friends.During those gruelling treatments, I often screamed and cried in pain as the nurse approached the chemotherapy. The medication altered my appearance and made me feel like an outsider among my peers. But deep within, I knew that I had to persevere, not just for the sake of my family but for my own well-being.
Finally, the news came—I was cancer-free. Joy surged, and I believed in my newfound strength. I returned to school, made new friends, and started playing sports again. Even though I was just an average student, my teachers thought highly of me. They supported me through all the challenges I faced.To this day, I continue to visit RGCI Rohini for regular checkups and actively participate in various events held there.
My heart brims with gratitude for the doctors and nurses who provided me with exceptional care, as well as my family and friends, who stood by my side through it all.
The organisations that have helped me maintain a positive outlook and embrace life to the fullest hold a special place in my heart. I am forever indebted to Dr. Gauri, my oncologist at RGCI. Her kindness and unwavering support instilled the hope I needed to keep fighting. Without her guidance, I would not be standing here today, sharing my story.It is my deepest desire that my journey will inspire others facing the daunting battle against cancer. Never lose hope, for you are never alone. There are people who genuinely care about you and want to help.
Remember, your life is worth fighting for, and together, we can conquer the unimaginable.
