She could not ever think of being diagnosed with a terminal condition. However, in the year 2009, she started having a headache and blurred vision.

The case manager took her reports and shared them with some of the best doctors to get the opinion. Thereafter, the opinion, a cost estimate and detailed profile of some of the best doctors and hospitals were sent to Ituma. After going through the profiles in detail, she finally decided to visit Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon.
