Chottu is a 20 months old baby diagnosed with Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD). He needs ASD + VSD Closure Surgery (6-7 hours of long procedure) on urgent basis. His treatment is ongoing in AIIMS, Delhi for the last 2 months.
Chottu is a kid of Mr. Ramdhyan Yadav, a driver who comes from the Mau district of Uttar Pradesh (UP). His father works as a driver. When Chottu is having trouble breathing, his parents took him to a local doctor's clinic. Doctors suspected the hole in his heart and referred him to Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital, Raipur, Chattisgarh. After detecting ASD & VSD with a bidirectional shunt in his heart, doctors refer the child to AIIMS Delhi. In simple words, Chottu has hole in his heart.
His father rushed to AIIMS, Delhi. He doesn't want to lose his other child at any cost. His parents already lost 3 of his children within a month of delivery due to the same disease - CCHD. He is residing in Jugghi of Okhla and comes to Delhi only for his child's treatment.
After completing 2 months of long procedures including ECHO, CT Angiography, and many other lab tests under Dr. S Ramakrishnan, Cardiologist, AIIMS, he has advised ASD + VSD Closure Surgery on an urgent basis. For the same, AIIMS is charging INR 80,000 for the surgery and mentioned depositing it within a week.
Lab cost of many lab procedure has already been paid by father. Cost of each procedure mentioned below:
- CT Angiography: INR 3000/-
- RTPCR of child & mother: INR 1200/-
- X-Ray: INR 30/-
- CBC, Urine Culture & Other Blood Reports: INR 400/-
- Medicines' Cost: Borne by father
- Doctor Consultation: Free of cost as per policy of AIIMS
His father is facing many challenges in collecting INR 80,000 for his child's treatment. He is not able to go on his job because of his child's treatment in AIIMS Delhi. He is already facing financial challenges after COVID.
I request everyone to please donate to the child's surgery and help Mr. Ramdhyan Yadav to see a smile on his child's face. We are very thankful to every individual who is helping us with funds and support.
