Sanook reported on the case of a 13 year old girl from Petchabun who has lived her entire life with her grandmother suffering from unsightly birth marks and leukemia.

Pictures of “Nong Nim” Nisakorn Panurak showed leathery skin that is terribly itchy for the young teen.

Teen with unsightly birthmarks - and leukemia - needs help | News by Samui TimesGran Nutcharee Namsongkhram, 55, said that her parents abandoned her when she was tiny and she had raised her with only the occasional bit of financial help.

The parents moved away to work in other provinces.

Doctors at Chulalongkorn Hospital in Bangkok told her five years ago that she would need to go abroad for an operation.

But she was poor and did what she could to alleviate the girl’s suffering at home.

In the hot weather she suffers terribly from itchy skin that is as hard as an elephant’s, said her gran.

When she was diagnosed with leukemia it only made the suffering worse.

Donations that were given to her in 2013 have long since dried up.

Now a new appeal has been launched – people can send donations to Krung Thai bank in the name of the grandmother: #6140355955.

A number can also be called for further details: 088 282 6653.
