Unquestionably, every child is precious. Of them, we are proud, they give us joy and fulfill our lives. We watch them grow and develop, their laughter and chatter ringing through the air is music to our ears. In return for the joy they bring, we nurture and protect. We share their love of life and cure their ills. But what when the laughter and chatter wanes?
Sadly, not all parents are blessed with strong healthy children. Even today with our advanced medical science, we still suffer the fact that children do get sick.
