The most exciting time in a couple’s life is the birth of their first child, but the same does not hold true with every couple. Meet Shankar Rao and Vasanta, after years of trying for a child; they finally had a baby boy. This moment of joy was marred within just a few seconds of their son’s birth. The baby was diagnosed with breathing issues, severe damage to the lungs & brain and arrhythmia. The couple is trying their best to stay strong and save their 12-day old son.
Initially, the couple had consulted a doctor at a government hospital in Marikapuram - Prakasham district. Post-delivery, the baby contracted multiple illnesses, and was moved for further treatment to a government hospital in Ongole.
Due to the severity of the situation, the baby has been placed in ICU at Rainbow Children’s Hospital – Vijaywada. The Doctors have recommended multiple treatments such as, NG feed, Antibiotic, Anti-epileptic drug, all of which costs approximately INR 6,02,000. The child’s parents, who are agriculture laborers are struggling to pay for his treatment and have sold whatever little gold the family possessed. They are now considering selling their one-acre land to save the baby, however the funds generated from selling the land will still not be enough to complete the treatment.
