A Life transformed!
30th May 2012
Shiva is 14 and from a very rural area in one of the poorest states of India.All his life he has struggled, not just with the grinding poverty that he has endured his whole life, but has had to live with a severe heart condition that he has had since birth. If he had been born in a different place or into a richer family, he would have had heart surgery as a young baby and would have been running around normally since he was a child. However, since he was born he has struggled with his breathing and has never been able to play or run around with his friends. His father died when he was younger, and his mother had all but given up hope that she would be able to get any help for her son. Then one day a relative of the family told them about the ‘Love the One’ clinic that had recently opened in a nearby village. At first just his uncle came to enquire as the family thought that Shiva was beyond help. However, once they realised that help was available, Shiva and his Mum came along to meet the team. Amazingly, a hospital in Hyderabad, 2 days away from his home agreed to give him a chance and helped to fund, in partnership with Love the One, a life saving and life changing operation for Shiva. In May, Shiva made the long journey from his mud hut village, to the big city and the surgeons at STAR hospital did an amazing job and gave Shiva a second chance!! The operation was a great success and Shiva noticed an immediate improvement in his breathing. Just after his operation he also found out that he had passed his GCSE equivalent exams, well done Shiva!!!
So in one month, Shiva’s life has completely changed and he now has a hope and a future!
