Humaira is 4 years old, she was born in Baramullah, Srinagar. Her father Mr. Hilal Ahmed is 33 years old and works as a farmer to earn a living. Humaira has been fondly named `apple’ by her family and friends, since she has red cheeks and everyone loves playing with her. Being the only child in the family she has been pampered a lot.
Humaira was born with a Congenital Heart Defect due to which she would feel weak all the time. A pediatrician at Khyber Hospital in Srinagar advised her parents to keep her on medication. However, after 4 years, there was no sign of improvement. The pediatrician asked the family to visit Gurugram for detailed consultation and treatment.
Humaira was treated successfully in Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI), Gurugram on 7th March 2018. Dr. Vijay Agarwal along with his team of doctors conducted the surgery.
Humaira’s mother Shafiqa says ` Allah has blessed us by taking care of our daughter and bringing her back to life. We would like to thank everyone who made this surgery possible.’
The treatment was supported by Fortis Foundation and Radha Mohan Mehrotra Medical Relief Trust.
