Real Medicine Foundation - Initiative "Long-term Medical Support for Children (Sachini)"

Status: Completed


Sachini is actually a young woman of seventeen with all of the dreams of a bright future ahead. However Sachini’s life is different from other girls her age. Due to a growth hormone deficiency Sachini has the “bone age” of a ten year old. Graduating from High School presents enough challenges but having to live with this reality creates exponential stress. What makes her case more challenging is that because of her age, the window of time left for her to grow before puberty sets in is short. Therefore her Drs. have recommended that she receive double the course currently being administered to take full advantage of the time remaining.
