10-months-old baby of Sushma needs to be treated for his Spinal Deformity

“When he was born, his back was slightly swollen. We were not aware of how dangerous this could be for him. But the swelling would not reduce. In fact, it started growing bigger. Since then we have been worried day-night about what wrong has happened to our small child.”-

Sushma ; (Mother)

This 10-months-old child is the baby of Sushma and Shivprasad. He was born with a spinal defect. In medical terms, he has been diagnosed with Meningomyelocele with tethered cord. It means that the spinal cord has failed to separate from the skin of the back during development, preventing the spinal cord from ascending normally. It further develops into other deformities and pain in the legs and back. If left untreated, it leads to sensory and motor problems, as well as loss of bladder and bowel control. The doctors at Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital in Bengaluru, Karnataka have proposed Meningomyelocele Closure with tethered cord release. The estimated cost for the treatment is Rs.1,50,000/- (Rupees One Lakh and Fifty Thousand Only)

This little infant has not even begun to experience life before he faced such a health issue with an un- ending loop. He deserves a healthy life. But his parents are unable to afford the treatment. Shivprasad (father) is an Auto Driver. He lives with his parents and the family of a married sister. He has more liabilities on him than he can handle. Somehow, the husband and wife managed the family struggles but a medical treatment is a very costly affair for them. They have no resources. Please support them to give their baby a normal life.

“We have visited many hospitals since the day my baby was born. When no relief was seen, we realized nothing but only surgery could treat him. It is painful for me as a mother to see my baby in such a condition. I hope he gets well one day. Please help us get him treated. We will always be grateful.” -Sushma (mother)
