Basic Information
Donate By : 31-August-10
Name: Harshita Luthra
Age: 10 years
Sex: Female
Diagnosis: Heart disease
Status: In The Hospital
Filled in by: Others
(I have no personal relations with the family. The moment I saw that child in the NDTV video ( http://bit.ly/aS9HoC ) I fell in love with her and I just cant bear the thought of her death. So my only reason for being involved with this case(despite my exam going on) is my love for cute and lovable children)
the patient is suffering from a heart disorder since her birth. In technical language it is called- VSD (ventricular septal defect).. that means there is some problem with the wall (Ventricular septum) that divides two chambers of heart The doctors also said that there is some defect in her pulmonary artery & Aorta. More detailed info about her medical problem here- http://shantihp.posterous.com/save-an-innocent-life That particular heart surgery is totally not possible in India. It will take place in the Child Hospital BOSTON (USA) Apart from the $88510 surgery expense, there will be 10 days extra stay in Hospital @$3300 per day, total of 45 days stay in BOSTON @ $40 per person per day, and then there will be huge expenses in medicines and back and forth air-fare for three persons.. All this will cost the family around Rs. 70 lac
Appeal Summary

On 4th August, at 4:30 pm, IST, Harshita's Operation has been successfully performed by the concerned Doctors there :D Now she is in recovery period. Still post-surgical recovery expenses of around Rs. 15 lac INR is required.

My heartiest thanks to Mr. R. Chandrasekar for his donation for this noble cause...

But apart from Surgery cost there is some more expenses involved in to-and-fro air Fare for 3 persons, medicines(medicines are not included in the Surgery cost) and 6 weeks stay there. So there is a need of at least 15-20 lacs more for the family.

By now, the parents have been able to collect around Rs. 44 lacs. So Surgery cost is there with them, so there are going ahead for the Surgery

the details of the amount raised through external efforts were deleted by mistake, so I reentered them collectively. So dates of receiving must have changed a bit but the total amount collected is rightly given here.

The family is getting some encouraging responses. The father of Harshita has received a letter from President Office and a noble person has wished to donate 33000$ directly to d Hospital :D

The family has not been able to collect the required amount. So I have changed (increased) the completion date to 31st August.

I have received confirmation from two more donors that they have deposited the money in the Account, I will update the same here as soon as possible.... THANKS..

Thanks to Mr. Vishwanathan for his financial help and his concern for saving the life of the innocent child. I urge more people to come forward to give her a new life

I am unable to make any contribution online...can someone help with the process

When you click on donate a window pops up and an email is sent to the fundraiser who will then get in touch with you. Have sent you an email to regarding this

I repeat, for full,detailed medical reports and/or Newspaper Reports visit here- http://shantihp.posterous.com/save-an-innocent-life

I have medical documents of ESCORTS Hospitals but the most recent treatment took place in NARAYAN HRUDAYALAYA Hospital, Bangalore under Dr. Devi Shetty and this is what I have mentioned in the HOSPITAL DETAILS part.... But I was not able to upload the reports from this Hospital despite various attempts, So I chose to upload the reports of ESCORTS HOSPITAL. But anyway, if someone is interested in the medical details then he can visit this page- http://shantihp.posterous.com/save-an-innocent-life On this page, all medical documents are given in the bottom part.

some mistake above, the the first line should be like- "I have uploaded....". the word "uploaded" is left by mistake.

I could try procuring second opinion for you. But you need to upload the medical record. I am not able to access the one you have uploaded

Thanks Mam, all the related info will be updated within 1 hour from now and all the discrepancies too will be taken care of...

Hospital authorization states it would cost approximately 88,510USD which is approximately 4,200,000 INR. Why are you raising funds for 7,000,000 INR?

now u can see above the approximate details of the expense amounting to about 70 lac
