I don’t understand how to handle everything– supporting my family, the expenses of medical condition and taking care of my old ailing parents. I pretend to be fine but I am shattered.”- Vikash,father
I have never felt so helpless in my lifeVikash and Kranti were always aware of Himanshu’s weak immunity. He was born lean. He had very low stamina and fell ill easily. They didn’t think much of it except wanting to provide good nourishment. Himanshu’s burning ambition and curiosity to learn to study made everything seem okay.
“We never stressed over it and thought everthing was fine. But last Diwali, my brother in law brought to our notice that Himanshu’s skin tone is darker and his tongue blue-ish. A series of events unraveled for us to find out that our 5 year old baby has a critical heart defect. I don't think I have ever cried and felt so helpless in my life”- Kranti, mother
