This 4-Month-Old Baby Girl Needs Your Support To Survive A Serious Heart Condition

4-month-old Baby Navya was just getting used to being a brand new person. Unfortunately, breathing which should be quite simple became extremely painful for her because she was born with a heart problem. She was diagnosed with Complex Cyanotic Congenital Abnormalities and needs a surgery to not only survive but also grow up as a healthy person.

I'm Uday. Navya is my granddaughter. My son and daughter in law live with me and my wife in Gandhinagar. He is a farmer. When there is no work on the lands, he works as a rickshaw driver. I work as a coolie. Together we manage to earn Rs. 500/day for the household.
They said she has had the heart condition ever since she was born. We did not quite understand it. We are not well read and never really knew that babies could have such complicated illnesses.

Suddenly one day she had trouble breathing. My granddaughter would turn blue. She would keep crying and crying would just make it worse. You can see that she is in pain. It is heart-wrenching. You would want to stop it for her. We did not know what to do.

I brought her here to Ahmedabad. A few people in the village suggested this hospital may be good and even the doctor referred us. They immediately scanned, tested and found out that she had a problem in her heart. If it is not fixed now we will lose her. Our nanhi pari is not even old enough to walk or talk, yet she is fighting the biggest battle of her life and she needs a major surgery to save her.

What adds to our worry is that they cannot proceed with the treatment without funds. We work for a few hundred rupees a day. It depends on our luck whether or not we have work for the day. Daily wages are not dependable. In a family of so many, it is hard to find even a rupee to save. How does anyone expect us to pay? Also, we never expected such a situation in our lives.

A good friend, Gopal Bhai has helped us in this mess. He has lent us a little money for whatever bills we had to pay initially. Right now my granddaughter has been taken off the ventilator and moved to the general ward. The doctor still says she needs surgery.

We don't know whom to depend on to save Navya. Everything is now in your hands. You are equivalent to our God. Only you can help us save our baby girl.
