“I don't take my eyes off her for even a moment. I am afraid she would stop breathing any moment; that she’d be gone…” – Janaki, mother.
Her eyes rolled back in her head and her chest went hollow
“She would struggle a little to drink milk; her forehead and body would sweat and she’d gasp for breath then. But I thought it was normal, and that maybe she was drinking too much. But 45 days later, she caught a severe cold. Her eyes rolled up and she gasped for breath so hard, that her chest went hollow…like a hole…– Janaki.
It was too late and doctors said she could not be saved…
“The doctors told us she could not be saved because we were very late. I saw my world collapse, and my conscience killed me. My daughter was going to go away from us because I had been ignorant… But luckily, she began to recover. Just when we began to feel relieved, the nightmares began again…” Janaki.
She is suffering from a serious heart condition and needs an open-heart surgery
“I see her grow weaker and weaker. She has lost weight and is struggling to cope. Only an urgent open-heart surgery can save her. For now, she is living off a syrup that makes her urinate every few minutes. Just when she sleeps, she wets her bed and wakes up. I can’t see her like this!” – Suresh, father
As a daily-wage labourer, Suresh is struggling to gather funds for her surgerySuresh has a handloom lever in his small thatched-roof house, that he depends on for a living. Ever since he knew of his daughter’s condition, Suresh has also been working as a driver at a company. All this fetches him no more than 15,000 rupees and he has no hope left.
“It is heart-breaking to see a child who is only the size of my hand struggle day after day. I want to see her live; I want to see her smile. I am doing all I can to save her but at this point, it is difficult for me to hope for the best. I know I am failing. I need help!” – Suresh.
