Success story of Annalakshmi – Sivagangai
Annalakshmi is now regular to school and in her fifth standard but it was not all fine for her just a few months ago. Her story to recovery is still in progress and started when she was just 1 year old. Being a native of Sivagangai she visited the Government hospital after she had frequent fevers. Doctors confirmed soon that Annalakshmi had a hole in his heart and that it will close by itself in 5 years. For 2 years Annalakshmi was on medicines since then and had regular check-ups.
Annalakshmi ‘s father, Selvam being a mason earned daily wages only when there was work. Selvam worked hard to fulfill his daughter’ requirements. They met a kind-hearted doctor at a government camp in Annalakshmi ‘s school who referred them to private hospitals in Chennai and Madurai. Selvam could not afford the hefty sum in private hospitals charged and decided to do the only thing they could, wait.
The same doctor then referred them to LMHF where they meet Dr.Gopi. Thereafter there was not much to worry for Selvam, Dr.Gopi examined Annalakshmi and fixed a date for the surgery. After a successful surgery, Annalakshmi recuperated at Little Moppet Heart Foundation to go back to school and her playful ways.
