While serving tea at a roadside tea stall near a Fortis Hospital, the owner mentioned to a Fortis employee that his niece, Muskaan, had Congenital Heart Defect but the operation was unaffordable. Muskaan’s case was referred to Fortis Foundation. In collaboration with its partner Fortis Foundation successfully operated on Muskaan in November.
In 2003, Fortis Foundation started its journey of treating children suffering from Congenital Heart Defect (CHD).
An article in the local Mohali papers covered the case of a 3 year old child suffering from CHD, Khushboo, whose mother could not afford to get her treated. Fortis Mohali intervened and Khushboo was operated successfully. Today she is married and has 3 children. Khushboo still goes for periodic consultations to the hospital and her consultations are free.
