New lease of life for Narayan

Repeka Nasiko
Thursday, August 14, 2014

A FINANCIALLY stricken and ill young woman who approached this newspaper early this year for support in raising funds for medical treatment is today well and healthy.

Manisha Narayan, 19, is back in Fiji after six months of medical treatment in India. Suffering from acute myeloid leukaemia, she underwent a successful bone marrow transplant with her brother Shiveel being the donor.

"I would like to thank everyone who contributed and donated towards my treatment to be cured from leukaemia recently," she said.

"It is because of you all that I am now back in Fiji having had a successful bone marrow transplant and I'm on my way to being the healthiest and strongest I've ever been."

She said there was so many people she wished to thank personally but so many of the donors were complete strangers who were generous enough to give her a chance to survive.

"I can never thank you enough. Words cannot be enough. My family and I will be eternally grateful. Most of all, the biggest thanks I would like to give is to my brother, Shiveel because he gave me his bone marrow and now I am producing healthy blood once more.

Prior to leaving for India, Ms Narayan was a constant visitor to the Lautoka Hospital, in need of blood transfusion.

Her family decided to launch a campaign to raise $100,000 for her medical expenses.
