Mahipal’s father, Sumer Singh is a teacher in a local village school where he teaches Social Studies. He gets meager salary of RS.6000 which fulfills their everyday family expenses. His mother, Sanju, is a housewife and he has 2 siblings. The family lives in a joint family with all their uncles and their families. Four of his uncles are into seasonal farming.
Since birth Mahipal would fall sick easily and take more time to recover completely. Most of the time he suffered from cold, cough & severe fever. He would eat very less food and have very little energy. When the family consulted a local doctor, he suspected heart problem and suggested they visit a Hospital in Bikaner. The family consulted Paediatric Cardiologist of Fortis Hospital at Bikaner in the regular outreach OPD. The doctor confirmed his heart problem and asked them to visit Fortis Escorts Hospital in Jaipur. Mahipal was diagnosed with Fossa Ovalis ASD 15X16 mm, Dilated RA/RV.
Mahipal was treated on 29th November 2017 with support from RMMMRT and Fortis Foundation.
