This teenager is the eldest in a family of six siblings and her mother has no other source of income to support the family except self-sufficient farming.

TALASEMIA

Talasemia ialah sejenis penyakit anemia yang juga penyakit keturunan. Walaupun biasa terdapat di kawasan Mediteranean, penyakit ini juga didapati di
India dan Asia Tenggara. Talasemia boleh diwarisi oleh anak jika kedua-dua ibu dan bapa mempunyai gen yang terlibat. Walaupun kedua-dua ibu bapa tidak menghidap anemia, kebarangkalian anak menghidapinya ialah satu per empat. Anak yang menghidap talasemia tidak boleh menghasilkan hemoglobin yang normal, iaitu bahan yang menghasilkan warna merah dalam sel darah merah dan merupakan bahan pembawa oksigen ke seluruh tubuh badan.
