These heart-breaking images reveal torment of a 7 years old girl who has had half her face ravaged by deadly skin cancer. Natasha Matimba has astounded doctors by clinging on to life despite being given just months to live last year. The youngster has a rare and incurable genetic condition which makes contact with sunlight or UV rays in artificial light burn her skin. Sufferers of xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), which affects only about 2’000 around world, can get aggressive cancer from exposure to sun. Now, doctors have said her mother Winnet Bandam, from Zimbabwe, to take her daughter home as there is nothing else they can do to help her.

Appeal for help

An appeal has been launched to help her family, who live with no electricity in a Norton in province of Mashonaland West. Liberty Goromonzi, an accountant based in Cambridge, has set up a fundraising page(www.gofundme.com) to pay for palliative care to make time Natasha has left more comfortable. On page he wrote ‘She holds on to dear life although her condition is deteriorating.’

‘Natasha’s life has been a struggle from when she was three months old, mother said she has been in and out of hospital with her daughter. Palliative care improves a patient’s quality of life by managing pain and other distressing symptoms of a serious illness. However, due to financial constraints, Natasha’s family is trying to make her life as comfortable as it can be, but they are struggling to make ends meet’ he added. Natasha’s stepfather, Tinashe Phiri, is unemployed but has sold his property to raise funds for Natasha’s medical costs. Items listed that family need include a bed and mattress/bed, bedding, diapers, antiseptic solution, bandages and painkillers.
