Layla, our hero, is 5 years old. She was admitted to the Hospital in February, 2021 and diagnosed with tumor on the left kidney. Her treating doctor Dr, Ahmed Mostafa, pediatric oncology consultant, decided to start with intensive chemotherapy doses to reduce the size of tumor. X-rays showed a good response and the tumor size was reduced. Hence she had a surgery to remove the tumor. After the surgery, the follow up tests showed the resurgence of the disease in her bone marrow. Her doctor decided giving her chemotherapy doses to get ready for bone marrow transplantation.
Despite the harshness of her sickness journey, her optimistic nature enabled her to overcome the fear of the disease. “I love the Hospital because we get to meet nice visitors who play with us and give us gifts while we are taking the chemo”, said Layla when we chatted with her. I like drawing, coloring, and make up. I received a nice gift from aunt Rasha, shares Layla. Later we were told that Aunt Rasha is head of public relations in CI Capital Company and one of many charity partners who support our children. She had promised Layla to bring her a makeup set and she visited her again to give her what she wanted.
Layla’s father: the Hospital is more than a facility where Layla receives cancer treatment. Thanks to the Hospital’s care and concern about her psychological condition, Layla forgot that she was ill. The young girl is dreaming of becoming a doctor: “I’ll have the transplantation to heal quickly and to grow up to become a doctor”, said Layla. “The Hospital saved Layla’s life and they exert all efforts to cure her from the dreadful disease, all for free, said Laila’s father. He added: “I wish everyone would recognize the worthiness of this place to receive our support and donations. I donate as much as I can as it all will be for the benefit of my daughter and other children who are wishing for cure.”
