Parand is an 8 years old girl, who was born in Andimeshk, southwestern Iran, and has been suffering from cancer since she was about 6 years old.

Due to the lack of a suitable hospital in the city where she lives, Parand has to travel 150 kilometers to Ahvaz, the capital of Khuzestan Province. Parand, like many girls of her age, dreamed of wearing a long pink dress and  a crown and shining like a princess in a pink dress. Parand's wish was granted with the help of the charity in Ahvaz.

After her wish came true, she returned to the hospital to prepare for the transplant. Parand is currently undergoing a transplant and is completing her treatment at Baqaei Hospital in quarantine.
