“In March 2014 on my way to school, I went faint after vomiting three times following which I was shifted to Shalimar Hospital.”

Thereafter, the doctors told her that she was suffering from stomach ulcer and Hepatitis C.

The parents sold their home for Rs1.8 million along with the dowry of her elder sister for the treatment, however, the funds are still shy of the required amount needed for complete treatment.

“The vein of my brain damages when I feel stressed following which blood comes out of my eyes,” revealed the distressed youngster.
