    Baby Panchami

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Baby Panchami is a 8 month old baby who was born with a defect in her diaphragm(membrane separating chest and abdominal contents). Most of her abdominal organs including Liver and Stomach was in her chest. Lungs were compressed by these organs. She required surgery immediately after birth. Although she made recovery from this major surgery, she continued to have problems due to small right lung with recurrent infections. She turns blue on excessive crying and on coughing due to high pressures within her lungs. She has needed multiple hospitalisations in her short life. Parents have taken this child to many different hospitals to treat these infections.

Currently,  she is admitted in our PICU with one such life threatening infection affecting her fragile lungs. This infection is putting a lot of strain on her already vulnerable heart and lungs.
She is on mechanical ventilator to help her breathe and medications to support her blood pressure.

Father works as a Free Lance tattoo artist and mother is a teacher.
Family's monthly income is around Rs 25000.

Parents have spent a lot of time and money with multiple hospitalizations for Baby Panchami. They are now struggling to make ends meet.

Panchami is extremely sick and is fighting for her life.  She needs to be on life support for at least another 72 hours till her lungs recover. She has been a fighter so far and now needs all the help to get through this phase.
Current hospital bill is around 2 Lakhs. Total estimated cost is likely to be around 4 Lakhs.

Mother has completely given up her job to take care of little Panchami.
Father works part time to pay for ongoing care.
You can make a difference to this family and especially to little baby Panchami. Your contributions will go a long way in her fight.

Kindly donate now. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
