INDIA (Madhya Pradesh) Three real sisters Palak, Aaliya and Alisha are suffering from xeroderma pigmentation (XP) – a rare genetic disorder that strikes one in 250,000 people.
Becauseof XP the girls, born with ‘milky-white’ skin, have layers of sunburn in their skin, turning their face and body into dark and patchy layers. Mother Zuvi Bano said,”Doctors give a long list of lotions, creams, shampoos and soaps for use. But even after regular use for the recommended period, we see no improvement. Zuvi who has three other daughters without XP added: ‘Their condition is only getting worse with time.
Girls were born very fair, like milk. But as they grew their skin started turning dark. Family had exhausted all the money they had but when they saw no improvement, they stopped taking them to doctors. Parents are worried for their little girls and think what will happen to their daughters. No-one will marry them. They are hoping for miracle so that children get cured and live normal life.
