Gurpreet is a 4 years 9 months child from Uttar Pradesh. She was born as a part of normal delivery at home. The parents are aware of the heart defect since the child was 3 years old. At the age of 3, she was suffering from breathing issues and she got tired very soon, even if she walks for some distance.
The parents took the child to a local hospital, the doctor referred to some medicines and advised the parents to continue the medicines. After some days, the parents through their neighbors went to some medical camp which was arranged by some NGO. The doctor advised the parents to take the ECG test. After the doctors evaluated the report, the kid was referred to Sanjeevini hospital. After the detailed ECHO evaluation, it was revealed that the child has a problem in her heart and she needs surgery.
The cost estimated for her surgery is Rs. 1, 68, 920 /- (One Lakh Sixty-Eight Thousand Nine Hundred and Twenty)
The doctor told to arrange money for surgery but it was so expensive that the family couldn’t afford the cost of the surgery. So the parents came back home. After that, the parents visited the District hospital Saharanpur, where Dr.Monika is a practicing doctor. She referred the patients to FMRI, Gurgaon. Gurpreet visited FMRI, Gurgaon and after detailed ECHO evaluation, it was revealed that the child will need VSD device closure surgery.
Gurpreet is a 4 Yrs 9 months child. She has 2 siblings. Her father is working as a laborer his monthly income is about Rs.5000 per month, and is the only earning member in the family. The financial condition of the family does not allow them to afford the cost of the surgery, therefore the family is looking forward to receiving support under the Umeed–Dhadkan initiative.
