“My daughter is very dear to my heart. All her childhood we had to refuse her to do
simple things like playing or running because her heart is weak. We do not want to
restrict her from all the happiness she deserves. Please understand our dire need for
money and help us save our daughter.” -
Deepika is a six-year-old daughter to Mr. Satvir and Mrs. Rita, from Uttar Pradesh. This
sweet girl is suffering from a complex heart condition. When Deepika was born, her
parents' happiness knew no boundaries. But little did they know that their bundle of
happiness could be suffering from such a complex heart defect.
When Deepika was two to three days old, doctors sensed something suspicious
seeing her body movements. A few tests were conducted which discovered that she
was suffering from Complex Patent ductus arteriosus (Large tubular PDA). It is a
heart condition that causes problems with blood flow between the heart and lungs.
Deepika's stay in the hospital continued for a few days till her health was stable
enough to be on her own. The doctors at that time informed Deepika's parents that
she would need to undergo heart surgery in the future as her little body would not
have been able to bear a major surgery.
Deepika's parents decided that they would fight every battle for their loving daughter
no matter what. They took additional care of her along with their three other children.
Deepika used to suffer from intense fevers often. She always has been underweight
and wheezing sounds would be heard from her chest.
Deepika is six-years-old now and her condition has worsened. She suffers while
breathing and her body is growing weak, day by day. Her parents took her to Paras
Hospital, Patna. The doctors have suggested a PDA surgical ligation (Heart Surgery).
The estimated cost of the surgery is Rs. 3,60,000/- (Rupees Three Lakhs Sixty
Deepika's father is a daily wage labourer and earns up to Rs. 250/- per day. Her
mother does minor garment stitching work which gets minimal earnings. This couple
has to manage all the monthly expenses of a family that consists of eight members.
Arranging the estimated lakhs of money for their daughter's treatment is beyond
their capabilities, especially when they have a scanty income.
Please help Deepika's parents to raise funds for her heart surgery.
