Essa Khan's Story
Among his neighborhood, two years old Essa Khan is famous as a miracle baby. Essa Khan did not breathe for several minutes after his birth. The doctors and parents had lost all hope for his survival. At last, after 40 minutes, he took his first breath. After that, the doctors tried their best to keep Essa’s heart beating and succeeded.
Afterwards, Essa Khan was admitted to the hospital for three weeks for treatment of pneumonia. The doctors advised him to take an ECHO test. Upon the result of ECHO, the doctors diagnosed Essa Khan with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). TOF is a cardiac anomaly that refers to a combination of four related heart defects that commonly occur together. To treat this life-threatening disease, the cardiologist has recommended Essa to undergo open-heart surgery for total correction.
Essa’s troubles do not end here. Consequently, His parents have circled back and forth to several local hospitals to seek affordable surgery. But, unfortunately, their quest bore no fruit.
