A new lease of life for Baby Taniha Alpha Fernandes

Why Am I Fundraising

My life was filled with joy as I was gifted with a baby sister.But then it all went awry as she was immediately diagnosed with numerous health problems.Today as she stands proud at the age of 10 and is turned out be a bubbly,naughty and talented child the past seems like a blur.As fate would have it she has to undergo another surgery namely laser-assisted endoscopic third ventriculostomy within a couple of weeks to lead a normal life.

She Was Born With Multiple Conditions

Born as a 7th-month preterm baby she was diagnosed with pneumonia,meningitis,sepsis,and diaphragmatic hernia within a few hours of her birth.Thus came the harrowing first surgery of her life just when she was 2 days old.After a couple of months just when we thought things are back to normal she showed signs of vomiting and increase in head size and was diagnosed with hydrocephalus.

Thus, she underwent her 2nd surgery of V.P.shunt at 5 months.The V.P. shunt turned out to be a failure and had to be removed when she was 1year old thus making it her 3rd surgery.The hydrocephalus had caused an alternate convergent squint for which she was operated the 4th time at the age of 2.As luck would have it and due to the prayers and wishes of our loved ones she started recuperating and getting back to normal amidst other tiny issues.But now the time has come for her to undergo third ventriculostomy as the symptoms are back again.

If the surgery isn't performed it may lead to abnormality.Until now my mother utilised all her savings and we spent lakhs for her without any help.We are two sisters who are presently pursuing our education.Now we are in need of financial help and thus, I'm putting forward this plea to all those kindred souls out there.


All the funds collected will go towards Taniha's health and well-being.
