Vani is an 18-year-old teen about to sit her final year exams in the Victorian city of Warrnambool.

The school captain and talented musician has lived with her family in Australia for seven years after they left Singapore, but now they face the possibility they might have to leave their home.

Dad Raj works in aged care and mum Prema in early education. They pay their taxes and have not once asked for a handout.

Three years ago, Raj applied for permanent residency and through a required medical test, discovered he'd been born with a kidney condition.

Now, he's therefore regarded as a burden by the government, because his treatment could be costly.

"To be crushed out of nowhere like this, told you have to pack up and go, it's something on-one should be put through," Vani said.

"I've sung the Australian national anthem in my school assemblies time after time," she said.

"Every time I sing it, all I feel is a part of me saying, 'do you deserve it? Are you worthy?'

"'For those who have come across the seas, we've boundless plains to share' - I repeat that line to myself every day. Although we just sing it without acknowledging the lyrics, to me that means a lot."

Her friends told A Current Affair the family were people who would make Australia "a better place", and who gave to their community.

Raj said seeing Vani, and her eight-year-old brother Vela, struggle with not knowing their future was "really tough".

"We don't even know what is going on," he said.

Raj's doctor, Elizabeth Hingston, said Raj had decided he would not want a transplant and would not want to go on dialysis - a resolution based on his attempt to save public funds.

"So I'm trying not to be a threat to the Australian community in any manner," he said.

Vani, who has ambitions of becoming a doctor herself, issued a plea to Immigration Minister David Coleman, who has the power to intervene in their case.

"I would just ask Mr Coleman to kindly consider this again, to kindly consider that we are humans too," she said.

"No-one should be made to feel this way."
