Pune (Maharashtra) [India], Oct 17 (ANI): Facing acute financial crunch, father of an ailing 18-year-old girl has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking financial assistance.
Ayesha Pinjari, daughter of a Pune-based auto driver, has been diagnosed with an ailment which requires her to undergo a liver transplant surgery, which would approximately cost Rs 25 lakh.
The teenager, who is currently bed ridden, told ANI, "I want to become a doctor. I want the people in power to help me in achieving this goal."
Dr Jitendra Oswal, Deputy Medical Director of Bharati Hospital said, "This disease is very rare. She needs a liver transplant which is expensive. Her brother also needs to be taken care of as he is suffering from the same disease. If he is not given proper treatment he will also suffer like her."(ANI)
