Bhubaneswar Woman Cop Donates Rs 10k For Treatment Of Cancer-Stricken Child
Bhubaneswar: Praises poured in for a woman police officer of Twin City Commissionerate Police here for her magnanimity towards a blind couple, struggling to pay for treatment of their blind and cancer-stricken child.
Talking to Odisha Bytes on Monday, Ashok Nayak, father of two-year-old Puja Archana Nayak, said her daughter had a bad fall last year. Although there was no head injury, she later complained of severe pain in her right eye.
“I took her to LV Prasad Eye Institute for a check-up. The doctors there told me that my daughter needs urgent surgery in her right eye. They later removed the damaged eyeball. When my daughter again complained about acute pain in her right eye, the doctors advised me to conduct brain mapping and MRI Scan. The test report revealed primary intraocular cancer in her right eye. The doctors then suggested two major operations,” Nayak said.
Unable to collect funds required for the operations, he had appealed through media for monetary help.
“A vernacular daily published the appeal last week. Infocity police station IIC Samita Mishra came to my house today and gave me Rs 10,000 for the operation. I express my deepest gratitude to the IIC for her generosity,” he added.
Nayak further said that the doctors at the LV Prasad Eye Institute told him that his daughter will be able to see with her left eye once the two major operations are conducted.
