Case Summary

Update to Siya’s case:
We have a donor who has covered the entire cost of Siya treatment. We are truly amazed and happy for this gracious generosity.

Siya, a 1 year old girl, has a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) a.k.a a hole in heart. In PDA, abnormal blood flow occurs between two of the major arteries connected to the heart. Before birth, the two major arteries—the aorta and the pulmonary (PULL-mun-ary) artery—are connected by a blood vessel called the ductus arteriosus. This vessel is an essential part of fetal blood circulation. The most common treatment for PDA is occlusion at cardiac catheterization.

Siya comes from a poor family. Her father is daily wage laborer earning Rs 7,000 (USD 113) per month. Siya is one of the 3 daughters the family has.

The cost of her procedure was about Rs 50,000 (USD 807).
