Vinay, a baby from Ghwera, was diagnosed with a hole in his heart at a very tender age. Vinay had varying symptoms ranging from breathing problems to more acute diseases like pneumonia and cyanosis.
His uncle took Vinay to Rajeev Gandhi hospital as his nephew showed symptoms of breathing difficulties. The doctor in Rajiv Gandhi hospital upon examination referred Vinay to Dr. Kohli's care, said his worried uncle.
After reaching to Child Heart Foundation Dr. Kohli diagnosed Vinay with DTGA and informed him that he would require the procedure of ASO to help Vinay.
The operation is estimated to be 4 lakh rupees. Vinay's father is a daily labourer and a disabled person, and his uncle works at a decor shop. The family couldn't effort to pay 4 lakh rupees for his surgery.
Dr. Vikas Kohli referred him to AIIMS due to the seriousness of his condition.
Unfortunately, because of the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, AIIMS was unable to obtain the machine required for his procedure. His operation kept postponing, and his health deteriorated.
Realising Vinay's condition, the CHF team made every effort to raise 4 Lakh rupees for his ASO operation. After struggling for 7 months, we finally informed his worried mother to prepare for the surgery.
Given the seriousness of his illness, the doctor informed his mother of the risks before his operation.
Vinay had a successful operation with God's blessing, and he is currently healing and becoming healthier by the day.
We were in tears as we watched him smile and giggle for the first time.
Vinay is now active and joyful.
We want to thank everyone who helped us save Vinay. All he needed was you all. Thank you, dear partners, for giving Vinay the "Gift of Life."
Vinay's mother said, "she is forever grateful for Dr. Kholi's care towards her son and would remain in debt to Child Heart Foundation for the hope they have shown them".
