Vishva

Vishva, soon to turn two years old resides in Chennai with his father Suresh and mother Nandani. He is their only child, and was born in a government hospital in Chennai itself. After birth, doctors noticed that the child had breathing difficulty and suggested that the family take him to another hospital where the facility of conducting an Echo was available. Suresh and Nandani took Vishva for the prescribed Echo and the diagnosis was made to their dismay their newborn son was suffering from a congenital heart disorder – a complete AV Canal defect. In this particular ailment, there is a hole in between the upper chamber of the heart (an Atrial Septal Defect) and the lower chamber of the heart (a Ventricular Septal Defect) and there is a common valve in place of the Mitral and Tricuspid valve. It is a rare defect that usually tends to affect only 2 per 10000 children. The parents were counseled and told that surgery was the only measure to save their sons life. It is through surgery that both holes are closed and two separate valves are created using leaflets. However, both parents decided to continue with the medications prescribed and soon they realized that Visvha’s growth was being hindered. A family friend guided the parents to take him to Thirvullar Government Hospital, where doctors from Miot Hospital visit for some much needed guidance and help. They made their way with great difficulty as finances were tight and they were then told that with all their documents they needed to come to Miot Hospital, in Chennai. Suresh shared with the doctors that they were struggling financially and leading a difficult day-to-day life, the cost of surgery was surely one that they could not afford. The doctors contacted us at Genesis Foundation, and we committed ourselves in supporting this case as Suresh earns a humble Rs 6000 per month as a labourer. Vishva has been operated on since, and is recovering all thanks to the support you have shown and given towards our cause to Save Little Hearts.
