"Whenever I look at my daughter smiling face I often tend to forget that Ritika is fighting from congenital heart disease. My eyes tear up when I feel that I am unable to afford the money for her surgery, I might never see that smiling little face again. We might never get those happy moments that used to cheer us up."
- Tukaram, Ritika's Father.
Due to congenital heart disease, 3-year-old Ritika is battling with her life.
It all started within a month after the Ritika's birth. The diagnosis report burst all their happiness. Ritika was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. The doctor concluded that Ritika needs to undergo intracardiac repair for her healthy living.
Ritika's parents don't understand the term which was put forward by the doctor, all they want is to save their daughter from this dreadful disease. The cost estimated by the doctor is Rs. 2,30,000/- (Two Lakhs Thirty Thousand Only). And a tentative date for her surgery is 25th April 2019.
Buried in debt, these parents have no way to afford the only cure for their child's treatment.
Tukaram (Father) is a labor worker by profession and the sole breadwinner of his family. He has already spent a penny for Ritika's medical diagnosis and hospital expenses. Each month he also needs to pay Rs.2,000/- for the rent of his house. Till date, he has liquidated all his savings and also borrowed the amount from his friends and family. Jyoti (Mother) as a housewife wants to support his husband, but the whole day she needs to take care of Ritika. Despite their unstable financial condition, Tukaram and Jyoti did everything in their power to continue their daughter's treatment, but the cost of it is unimaginable for these poor parents.
You can help Ritika to fight with congenital heart disease and to live a normal life.
Ritika parents always live in constant fear of losing their daughter. It is painful to see a once active, fun-loving girl now running away from people and trembling in pain all day. Crowdfunding is their only hope, and they're waiting desperately for your help.
