Ghanaian filmmaker Leila Djansi has pleaded with everyone to help raise an amount of $25,000 for operation for a little girl, Doris.
Little Doris has bilateral Retinoblastoma, cancer or tumour of the eye that is prevalent in Ghana among children aged 1-3. Djansi has been supporting Doris with treatment at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for some time now but the latest operation needs her to be flown to India. And, also for Doris to be placed on chemotherapy.
Leila Djansi explains the situation further, read her post below:
Retinoblastoma has few, if any, symptoms at first. It may be noticed if a pupil appears white when light is shined into the eye, sometimes with flash photography. Eyes may appear to be looking in different directions. Please educate your loved ones with young children about this deadly cancer and let’s encourage our local eye clinics to be vigilant.
Doris requires $25,000 to become cancer-free. So far, she has seen a lot of progress as the tumour is shrinking rapidly. But it is important to keep her on chemotherapy. Please donate and share so we can spread a wide net of love and support to help this brave girl in her fight to thrive.
