“He is already 3 but doesn’t have the normal life of a 3-year-old, you know. We are always worried for him. He takes 2 steps and sits down, tired, huffing. Sometimes, he even turns blue. A little change in weather and he has a fever. The fever goes on for days. He is 3 but hardly growing,” says a worried Poonam.

He fell unconscious that day, we thought we had lost himYuvraj was 6 months old when his parents noticed his laboured breathing. They noticed that he was too weak to even feed. They knew it was not normal.
“Doctors told us that medicines would make him better but it didn’t. When he was 2, he fainted one day. We thought it was the end,” - Poonam.
Yuvraj was rushed into surgery then. Vipin and Poonam thought that this would cure him. Yuvraj was fine too for a year. But only a few weeks ago, his condition started worsening. A visit to the doctor has confirmed that Yuvraj needs another surgery.
