The mother of 7-year-old Rishav Lal is thankful to WOWS Kids Fiji for her son's new life who in 2017 was diagnosed with Leukemia, a white blood cell cancer.
Shareen Lata says her son would constantly get sick with symptoms like fever, headaches, blood clots and bruises and when she took her son to the health centre, the doctors would only provide panadol and antibiotics with an examination of cold infection.
The 46-year-old says Rishav was just two when she took her son to the CWM Hospital for a blood-test, after which the doctors informed her that it was a white blood cell cancer.
She says they admitted her son a few weeks after the blood-test and that is when the doctors connected her to WOWS Kids Fiji, an organisation that supports children with cancer.
In an interview with fijivillage News, Lata shared the journey that she had to conquer for her only son during treatment and wants no other parent to go through the same.
Lata acknowledged WOWS Fiji for their continuous support by paying for her son’s medicines that would have cost them $300 to $500 in a single cycle.
She also encourages parents to take their kids for blood tests if they have similar symptoms.
