“While spending time with Shlok, we noticed that he was not showing any active participation. He just lies down on the bed and wouldn’t even giggle or crawl. Soon, we noticed that he was facing a respiratory problem. We got scared and took him to the doctor and diagnosis result just shattered our lives. I broke down realizing my 2-year-old might die if we can’t afford the treatment.”
