Posted by ABC News News (USA) on July 12, 2019 A little girl named Kannu had her tumor removed when she was eight months old.
“I remember thinking, I know what I’m doing, this is what I’ve been doing,” Kannan told ABC News.
A doctor in India, who was in charge of Kannus surgery, called in a few specialists to help, and then, just as quickly, the surgery went wrong.
It turned out that Kannua had a rare genetic disorder, called aokigaahara, that caused her body to not be able to properly absorb the hormone testosterone, which causes female puberty.
Kannua underwent a full-scale sex change operation in her childhood, but the surgery would not cure her cancer, according to her father, Darshan.
The surgery, when done correctly, would have turned Kannuan into a woman.
But when she began hormone replacement therapy in her late teens, she developed severe, uncontrollable acne.
Her mother, Prashant, was shocked when Kannun began to feel more normal again, but not to the point where she could finally get her daughter back on the boys’ side.
Prashant says she has been battling her cancer since 2013, and every day, Kannuna struggles to feel the pain of her own body, as if she were a little doll.
For Prashan, it has been an emotional roller coaster of emotions, but Kannuka has also been battling mental illness.
Darshan says the boy has also had other health issues that were never addressed.
When Prashanth asked the doctors about Kannaras surgery, she says the doctors said, “If you take her off, you are removing the girl.”
Pragyan also found out that her son had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2013, which is a condition in which blood sugar is too high, which in turn can lead to weight gain.
Doctors have not been able to figure out how to fix Kannubas diabetes, but they have been trying to find a way to treat it.
Despite this, K Annu’s parents continue to be hopeful that they will one day be able aokige.
And, despite the ongoing challenges they face, Pragyan says they are optimistic that the treatment will work.
According to the Mayo Clinic, in the U.S., aokigiahara is caused by an abnormal mutation in a gene that is involved in the hormone production.
In India, the genetic disorder is also known as aangigahar, and it affects one in every 2,500 people.
With help from the National Cancer Research Center, a team of doctors in New Delhi are working to find the cause of K Annun’s cancer.
They have identified a gene called the A1A1A-3 that is critical to hormone production and the ability to control hormones, according the Mayo clinic.
If it is not found, the family will be unable to access hormone therapy and will need to seek a new treatment.
But if the gene is found, Prabhudhan and his team say they can create a protein that could restore normal hormone levels to Kannuns body.
There is still a long road ahead, and Prabhin hopes the treatment can help Kannunnas life.
“It’s the first time we have successfully found a cure for a cancer,” Prabhan told ABC News.
Now that she is a little bit more aware of the condition, Kanna is hopeful she will be able get her life back on track.
