Hyderabad: Sravani, a 12-year-old girl who hails from a poor family in Narsaraopet of Guntur district, miraculously recovered from blood cancer and loss of sight. According to the doctors of Indo-American Cancer Research Institute, who treated her, her will power helped her bounce back. She is now attending school, participating in sports events.
Sravani had gone into coma for about two months and had lost her vision. Her parents had given up hope of her recovery. But the first miracle happened as she came out of coma. Sravani at that stage expressed her desire to see and talk to film actor Balakrishna. When Balakrishna, the chairman and managing trustee of the cancer institute, came to know about her wish, he cancelled his shootings and met her in 2011.
Counselling her not to lose hope, Balakrishna said that if she followed the advice of the doctors, she would certainly recover her sight and would be able to see the world again. Balakrishna, despite his busy schedule, kept visiting her regularly. He also instructed the doctors to take special care of her.His counselling gave a boost to her confidence.
As days passed by, Sravani started responding positively to the treatment. Later, she was made to undergo physiotherapy and finally she started walking. Slowly she regained her eyesight. Now she has gone back home fully recovered. Sravani is now going to school as a regular student in her village. She is participating in all games and cultural programmes. In a recent communication to the hospital, she vowed to participate in cancer awareness programmes of the hospital and extend all possible help to the patients from her side.
