Subject: summary of ashwini- heart patient
To: Rupesh Gesota <rupesh.gesota@...>
This is the case of a 9-yrs old girl named Ashwini diagnosed with a congenital heart disease. She is the daughter of the maid working with me. This family is very poor and is merely able to get the ends meet.
Ashwini had the problem of breathlessness since birth but was diagnosed with a heart problem at the age of 8 yrs at a municipal hospital in Vashi. They immediately referred her to KEM hospital where they were informed that she will require surgery which will cost between 1 and 2 lakhs. This expense was beyond their reach so they left the hope. Since 1 year she is kept on some medicines and her condition has now worsened.
Her mother recently started working with me, and I decided to help her. I got her admitted at J.J. group of hospitals and got all her tests done. After all the tests were done, it was concluded that she needs a heart surgery (CCHD with pentalogy of fallot with infunibular and valvular PS) which will cost them 1-1.25 lakhs at the hospital and Rs 50,000 for post surgery medicines.
I have attached all her reports with this. Ashwini is not in good state now but doctors have assured that she will improve after surgery and needs the surgery as soon as possible.
Please help if you can…

- After enquiring about this patient, it was learnt that the family does not have proof of them being poor... i.e. BPL card, Adhaar card etc. It is suggested that if anyone- personally / thru any NGO can help out the family to register themselves as BPL it would help in the long run. This will enable them to avail any such Govt. scheme meant for BPL beneficiaries in future.As far as the surgey is concerned please help towards getting it done within Mumbai region at a minimum cost possible.
