A nurse by qualification and a housewife at heart, she is a perfect example of an Indian woman working double shift!
She was diagnosed to have Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) around 3 years ago after the delivery of her 2nd  daughter. Weakness in her legs kept on increasing followed by weakness in hands. Eventually her speech and swallowing was also affected.
She underwent SCT, 2 years after the onset of her symptoms. She got a second shot within the next 6 months. Following which not only did the rate of deterioration reduce but also there was tremendous improvement in terms of speech, fine movements of fingers, stamina, ambulation and her overall muscle strength.
Her disciplinary quality of following a rehabilitation routine has made her overcome her difficulties and continue working as a nurse along with taking care of her family.
She is clothed inSTRENGTH And DIGNITY And she LAUGHSWithout Fear Of The Future.
