Sponsor part treatment of a poor patient with cancer of the eye, INR 9000


Dr Shroff's Charity Eye Hospital is considered to be one of the best Eye /ENT care providers in North India today. They are thankful to their donors in partnering their cause and giving sight/hearing to thousands of less privileged people.

The Basics

Many types of cancerous eye tumours, including the most commonly seen “Retinoblastoma,” affect the eye, but are unfortunately detected very late. By then the treatment involves removing the infected eye and then saving the life of the patient.

How It Works

• The aim of treatment is to destroy the cancer cells, stop the cancer coming back, and to save as much of your sight as possible.
• The treatments for eye cancer include surgery, laser treatment, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
• The type of surgery you have will depend on the location and size of the tumour.
• A patient may only need to have part of his/her eye removed, for example, the iris and ciliary body, or all of it.
• The removal of an eye is called an “Enucleation.”

Ajay -5 year old, getting treatment for Retinoblastoma of the eye at SCEH
Ajay, a 5 year old boy, the only son of his parents, belongs to a poor family of a farmer. Some months back his left eye started paining and there was sudden drop of vision. The parents took him to local Ayurvedic doctors who gave him medicines, and when his situation became bad, and the Retinoblastoma covered his whole eye and became very much visible, they brought him to SCEH.
Ajay was given 6 cycles of chemotherapy to arrest the spread of malignancy before he could be operated. Each cycle was administered at the gap of 1 month, after testing his blood count etc. As the cancer of his eye was in a very advanced stage, in the next phase his eye had to be removed surgically. After this radiotherapy treatment has been started; this will be administered in about 20 sessions, which aims to protect the malignancy from spreading and becoming life-threatening.
Ajay became very comfortable after the surgery, as his pain had gone. He started playing and roaming about the hospital as he had to stay in the hospital for over a month. His radiotherapy is going on; he will be reviewed after the whole treatment and subsequently will come for a follow-up every 6 months.
