Notable American-Ghanaian film producer, Leila Djansi, has intensified her a campaign to solicit fund for Doris, a little girl who was diagnosed with cancer to enable her undergo further medical treatment in India.
Doris was diagnosed with cancer which reportedly spread into her brain years ago. The toddler has had a difficult childhood because the ''tumours rendered her immobile.''
Reports say it first began as pain in her eyes and subsequently became a full-blown infection.
Through the efforts of Leila Djansi, an award-winning American-Ghanaian filmmaker and her friends, the ailing little girl went through surgery after she raised funds and matched the total amount with her own money to pay for the medical procedure.
While Doris’ health appears to be improving owing to the first treatment, she urgently needs to go through another surgery outside the country.
''Most of us remember when we first saw Doris. Those tumors were life sized. The infection rendered her immobile. But we, the people, we rallied together and got it done! She’s on her way to a full recovery and a future,'' the Grass Between My Lips producer said in a post on Facebook.
Leila Djansi appealed for financial support: ''Please help her to India for the final leg. The Doctors in Ghana have reached their limit. But we can’t get this far and give up on her. Thank you for coming through! Other means of donating if you're in Doris's home country Ghana,'' she added.
