This 9-month-old Baby Suffers Due To Fluid Accumulating In His Brain

“When Ishan was born, I was the happiest! My baby boy had finally arrived but then 3 months later we noticed his head was growing abnormally large. It scared me; I immediately took him to the hospital. Our lives have been a downward spiral ever since...”- Ashida, Ishan’s mother.

Now 9-months-old, Baby Ishan’s head has swollen abnormally large due to fluid building up within the brain. The extra fluid puts immense pressure on the brain and can also lead to brain damage.

“His condition was getting critical every day while we were struggling to collect funds. We took loans and sold our assets to get enough funds for one surgery but he needs another one to survive this”- Ashida

While Ashida is a housewife, her husband Faasil works as a driver to make ends meet. They need 4 lakhs to afford one last surgery that could save their child’s life. They have already spent 2 lakhs on the previous surgery and various tests and scans, they are left with nothing now.


“He is our first-born baby. We cannot lose him so terribly, please donate and help us”
Baby Ishan is receiving treatment from Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Your generous contributions will help him get the life-saving treatment and lead a normal life like any other child his age.
