Dear Donors, 

Venkatachalam’s parents Varadarajan and Kuppaiyi  reside in Namakkal where they work for a daily wage in the weaving Industry.   Every time Venkatachalam has to undergo a surgery, his mother, Kupaayi, has to give up working.  They have two daughters older to Venkatachalam – all studying in the local government school, as all the money they earn is spent on check ups every six to eight months for Venkatachalam. 

This will be Venkatachalam’s third procedure.

His first two surgeries were also at MIOT Hospitals, aided through CHIME.

In the recent check up, Venkatachalam has been diagnosed to have   S/p repair of Truncus Arteriosus, Truncal Valve Replacement,

Presently diagnosed to have  Calcification and obstruction of RV-PA conduit, Severe LVOT obstruction due to Pannus formation over the arortic prosthesis

He is advised to undergo Redo Open Heart Surgery: Replacement of RV-PA conduit+ Replacement of aortic valve prosthesis for correction of the same.

Estimate Cost –  400000/- (Rs. Four Lacs only) including surgery, ICU & Hospital stay, Post op investigations and medication.

 Venkatacham is in the fourth standard, goes to the local Government school and is rated a good student. He is very articulate and active. When asked why he is here, he told me “I have a heart problem”.
