"I am partial disable labor worker and my wife is housewife, we never had a lot of money. But we never compromised on our daughter's dream. We toil in fields so that we can give our daughters the best of the things that we can afford. I promised to protect her from all dangers, but now my daughter Athmika has been diagnosed with a dreadful disease. She needs to undergo Complete Sternal Reconstruction with 3 weeks ICU stay to get well, but there is no way that we can afford such a huge cost."
- Binu, Athmika's Father.
Athmika had been diagnosed with Congenital Agenesis of Sternum during her birth. She continuously suffers from pain in her chest and suffers from a respiratory problem. The sternum or breastbone is a long flat bone located in the central part of the chest. It connects to the ribs via cartilage and forms the front of the rib cage, thus helping to protect the heart, lungs, and major blood vessels from injury.
A Labor worker with a meager income is struggling to get Athmika treated.
Athmika needs Complete Sternal Reconstruction with 3 weeks ICU stays to fight back from this dreadful disease. But both the parents are not in a condition to arrange the cost of Rs. 3, 75, 000/- (Three Lakh Seventy-Five Thousand Only) estimated by the doctor. Now, without any help, they would not be able to save their daughter.
How you can help?
Athmika is the single child of Binu and Resmi who loves her immensely. But both the parents have no means to arrange the cost for Athmika's surgery. The estimated cost is beyond their means. A small contribution from your end can give 8-months-old Athmika a second chance of life.
Your support can save Athmika's life.
