Prince, who is five and a half years old, has Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF), a rare illness characterised by a combination of four heart abnormalities present at birth.
When Prince did not demonstrate age-appropriate growth, his father suspected something was amiss. He took him to the hospital, where Prince had monthly check-ups and was on a lot of medicine for a while. After noticing no improvement, the physicians ordered a few blood tests.
Prince's platelets were found to be abnormally high, and his blood was unusually thick. He was ultimately diagnosed with TOF after consulting with several physicians. Because the prince's parents could not afford the procedure, they turned to the Child Heart Foundation, where Dr. Vikas Kohli generously provided them with a free consultation and echo.
Prince's condition was critical, necessitating emergency surgery. His parents only earn 9,000 rupees each month to sustain their family of four. They were unable to pay for their son's treatment, but the Child Heart Foundation stepped in and began fundraising for him.
His whole funds were quickly gathered, and his family was counselled on the probable outcomes and risks of the surgery. Prince received life-saving treatment after a successful fundraising campaign. A post-surgery check-up reveals that he is recuperating nicely and has begun eating normally. We can conclude that he is safe. We wish him a healthy heart and a good life in the future.
