Navneet is 11 months old. He was born at private hospital in Nawanshahr, Punjab. His father, Onkar Chand is a driver and his mother, Jyoti, is a housewife. They live in S.B.S. Nagar, District Gurdaspur.

When Navneet was 8 months old, he started running a fever and his parents took him a private clinic in Phagwara. The doctor examined the child and informed them about hole in his heart. He advised them to get a second opinion from another hospital. Subsequently his parents went to PIMS Hospital in Jalandhar. The echocardiography revealed a hole in the heart and the doctor recommended a surgical intervention.

The PIMS doctor referred Navneet’s case to Fortis Foundation.

In June 2018, Navneet was brought to Fortis memorial Research Institute in Gurugram. He was successfully treated by Dr. Vijay Agarwal and his team.

His surgery was supported by Fortis Foundation and Radha Mohan Mehrotra Memorial Research Trust.
