This fundraiser is in an urgent need of funds

End a 10-year-old boy's suffering by helping him to undergo heart surgery.

“My son always asks me when he will be free from this heart defect. I don't know what to answer him. This surgery is the only option to free my son from this cage of suffering. We have spent all our savings on his treatment so far; we are in debt now. But we cannot even afford that. Please, please help us.” -

Nagesh Pathlavath ; (Father)

Vishal is the 10-year-old son of Mr. Nagesh and Mrs. Vinuka from Telangana. Vishal has been suffering from a complex heart defect since his birth. He has been told to be cautious all his life because his heart is fragile.

Vishal is the first child of his parents. Therefore, they took extreme care of their loving son, and their happiness knew no boundaries. But fate had different plans for them. When Vishal was as young as 11 days old, he underwent a few tests; the results were shocking. He was diagnosed with Complex Single Ventricle (a Functional Heart Disease). After a few days of treatment at the hospital, doctors discharged Vishal, informing his parents that Vishal would need to undergo heart surgeries in the future.

When Vishal was one year old, he underwent a Bidirectional (BD) Glenn shunt. This resolved only half of the problems for Vishal as his little body was too weak to go through major surgery. Since then, Vishal has been living a different childhood than others. He faces difficulties in breathing often. His body grows weak and cannot perform activities that require strength.

Vishal is 10 years old now and his condition has worsened. He was taken to the Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Hyderabad where doctors advised a Staged Fontan Operation as a part of his treatment. The estimated cost of which is Rs. 3,90,000/- (Rupees Three Lakhs Ninety Thousand Only).

Vishal's parents are daily wage farm labourers. Both earn up to Rs. 200/- each day. This minimal income barely suffices the monthly expenses for the family of five and the education of Vishal and his two younger siblings. His younger siblings do not even know what difficulties his brother is going through yet pray every day for his recovery. The family needs you to support them so they can afford Vishal's expensive yet life-saving treatment.
