I met a girl with cancer at the hospital where I have my classes. Her name is Komala and she’s 11 years old. I read about her in an article a week ago, and only summoned up enough courage to go see her today.
She has a very aggressive osteosarcoma that spread quickly and is invading her right eye. She’s currently having radiotherapy and is on palliative care only. She didn’t respond to chemotheraphy (and her WBCs and platelets are too low to try again) and has stopped responding to morphine (so she’s in a lot of pain as well).
She was quiet and didn’t speak much, but was receptive to us. She said she couldn’t read her books because her eye was troubling her. Her mother said that she likes reading, drawing, painting nails, and is rather artistic.
If any of you like to draw, can I ask you to spare a little time and draw something nice for her? Anything at all, just to encourage her to keep fighting. You can share a story, a meaningful quote, a cartoon character, literally anything. [And if you want, please sign it with your name/nick, your age and your country]. I will print a sketch out each day and give it to her. I don’t care how small of a doodle it is, I believe it’ll still give her something to look forward to every morning.
I’m keeping my submissions box open or you can give me a link through my ask. PLEASE spread this around a bit. Even if I get 30 replies, I have a letter to give her every day for a month.
You can read about her here and here
