Pooja, 16-year-old, has always been a hard-working student. She loves cooking and usually spends her time doing art and craft. She decorated her house with beautiful things she made. But now she is hardly able to even get up on her own as she was diagnosed Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), 4 years back.

It is hard for her to get out of the bed and do anything. She gets exhausted after every small task and an as essential task as eating also seems huge. VSD refers to a hole in the wall separating the two lower chambers of the heart carrying the oxygenated blood and the de-oxygenated blood. This defect leads to higher pressure in the heart or reduced oxygen supply to the body, which makes her tired and breathless.

Brahm Dev Thakur, Pooja’s father, told, "Initially, Pooja was given medicines to cure her ailment. The family used all the financial resources they had to help their daughter to be normal again. But now the doctors have said that only a surgery can save her life'. The estimated cost of her surgery is Rs.3,90,000 which is well beyond their affordability.

Father works in a small factory and earns Rs.7000 a month, sole bread earner for 7 members. In this whole journey of the parents, Pooja is struggling with her life and waiting with a hope that some miracle will happen, and she will be fine.

"We request you to support Pooja & her family in the time of difficulty and donate for her heart surgery. She needs your continuous support and contribution to live a life she has always wished for."
