Story
Impact

Reshma was 10 years old when she was diagnosed with **Ewing's Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer.** She had to undergo bone surgery and chemotherapy but her tiny and fragile body was in not ready for such intense treatment.She is from a poor family and **her parents did not have enough money to give her the food and nutrition she needed to endure the treatment.** Without nutrition, the body reacts to chemotherapy like it is being poisoned. Reshma's condition only got worse over time.She had no strength left in her hands and could not walk without a walker. She was weak, in pain and forgetting the last time she felt normal. She had lost hope of reaching there again.When Cuddles discovered Reshma, they enrolled her in their program. They gave her a high-calorie protein-rich diet. **They helped her build strength to accept the strong treatment that she needed.**Reshma gained weight and began to restore herself over time. She is still undergoing her treatment but now has a real shot at beating cancer.


About The Program

Cuddles foundation through this program works on providing holistic nutrition to underprivileged children suffering from cancer.Most cancer affected children from low socioeconomic background are malnourished at diagnosis. As a result of this, their bodies are not strong enough to withstand the treatment.**Food Heals Cancer**When a child is well-nourished, she experiences fewer side-effects and treatment complications. This ensures that the child completes her treatment timely thereby improving her chances of survival.At the hospital, every child is assessed by the Cuddles nutritionist who makes a customized diet plan for the child which includes important nutritional supplements like protein powder, protein biscuits, feeding tubes etc.When you donate to this program you will help a child fight cancer with food.
