It is a hard life for fisher woman like Naneeshwari who live along the coast of Rameswaram. Her normal working day starts at 6 am and she works till 4 pm, sometimes even later. She visits around 30 homes and does not return home till she has sold off the entire basket of fish. This has been her routine since her husband left her when Gowtham was just a 5-month-old baby.
Amidst all her struggle, it was her son who gave her hope and happiness. But now a cruel heart disease threatens to take him away from her. Unfortunately, she has no means to save him.
His heart disease was diagnosed at a free health camp in his school
When Gowtham started going to school, he had many stories to share with his mother. Despite being tired, Naneeshwari always listened attentively to those anecdotes. But one day, he shared a terrifying news with her - "Amma, today doctors came to our school, my teacher asked you to come tomorrow." Naneeshwari was shocked, she was anxious and could not sleep that night. The next day, she went to school and heard a devastating news.
"They told me that my son has many defects in his heart and he is not getting enough oxygen. I did not understand anything. He was always slow and got tired very fast but I never took it seriously. I regret every moment now." - Naneeshwari.
Heart surgery can save his life but this poor mother has no means to afford it
It has been a month since Gowtham's heart disease was diagnosed and there is a drastic change in his health. He has stopped eating and even walking a few steps makes him breathless. He is sleeping all the time. A stubborn cold leaves him with a terrible headache. He does not let his mother move away from his side. Naneeshwari feels extremely helpless and she fears that she will not be able to save her son.
"Even when my husband left me I was determined to stay strong for my son. But now, I'm broken. How can I arrange for Rs 2 lakhs? I can't even imagine it." - Naneeshwari.
