She enjoys playing cricket and loves cooking and eating chicken.

 

Bizla’s family was aware of her heart disease since birth as she was had a faster heartbeat. In 2016, she was treated in Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) for BT shunt. She was then told she would require a second surgery sometime in future. For the past few months, Bizla had been feeling breathlessness and very tired. She visited FMRI on 5th February and consulted the Pediatric Cardiologist who suggested an evaluation and ECHO. The Echo revealed the need of another surgery -GLEN SHUNT.

Bizla had a successful surgery on 15th February 2018.
