Like most children her age, Jasmine loves to swim, play board games and has her own garden at home. But something sets Jasmine apart from her friends: Jasmine has fought cancer not once, but twice, in her young life.

Jasmine was just 5 years old when she first walked through the doors of MAHAK Hospital. Treatment for Neuroblastoma is complicated. Jasmine has undergone chemotherapy, radiation, a bone marrow transplant and multiple surgeries. Her cancer came back again and like the other time MAHAK was there for her family.

When Jasmine first arrived at MAHAK, her family didn’t know that MAHAK would not only cover the costs of Jasmine’s treatment, but also their housing, food and travel expenses. "MAHAK took our worry away," said her mom. "We were able to focus on the most important thing—Jasmine’s health."

Throughout her treatment Jasmine has received unconditional love and attention from all the MAHAK nurses, social workers and volunteers. The most memorable part of her days at MAHAK hospital was visiting the hospital garden with its calm and serene surroundings. Today Jasmine is doing well and has her own garden at home as a constant reminder of the love and attention she received during her treatment at MAHAK.

Jasmine’s family is grateful for MAHAK donors. "There’s just not enough you can say to someone who gives without ever seeing MAHAK Hospital," said her mom. "Their generosity is overwhelming."
