Kabir, a little boy, was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a congenital (existing from birth) cardiac condition that affects newborns and children. He was taken to the hospital when he developed a high fever at the age of four months. After an echo test, he was diagnosed with TOF, and his parents opted to take him to AIIMS for treatment.
Kabir and his parents visited AIIMS often for two months and were requested to return when Kabir was five years old. They proceeded to Swami Dayanand Hospital for a second opinion, where the doctor referred them to Dr. Vikas Kohli, who gladly consented to assist him. Dr. Kohli provided Free Echo and consultation and referred him for registration under the CHF HRIDAAN programme for treatment financial assistance.
Given the severity of his illness, Dr. Vikas Kohli encouraged the Fundraising team to gather his funds as soon as possible so that his life-saving surgery could be done immediately.
And after 1.5 months of hard effort, Kabir's funds were raised, and his parents were advised to prepare for the operation. Dr. Vikas Kohli counselled worried parents and assured them that Kabir will be safe and get better after the surgery.
He had his successful surgery, and his parents were reassured following a post-surgery check-up that Kabir is doing well and in good health.
His parents expressed their gratitude to Dr. Vikas Kohli and the Child Heart Foundation staff for their unwavering support.
