TOUCHING LIVES

A little heart cured

A 3 year-old baby Ijeoma, was suffering from severe cardiac complications at her tender age. Her mother could only helplessly watch as her daughter cried all the time and her body slowly turned blue. Upon her arrival to India at Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, it was found that baby Ijeoma had a hole in her heart. Pediatric cardiac surgeon, Dr. Naville Solomon performed the surgery to correct this defect and was supported by paediatric cardiologist, Dr. Bhushan Chauhan. Post the surgery baby Ijeoma was playing and laughing like any normal toddler.
