“I will never forget the past one month which I spent at my daughter’s side in the hospital. Dhanashree has now recovered; she now cuddles and plays with me. She is soon going to be discharged and we are going to return to our village,” said Krishna Mujmule, the father of Dhanashree.
He added, “Our family will always remember the day on which Dhanashree underwent a heart transplant which ultimately saved her life. Now one month post the operation, her health is far better than before. She is not facing any health issues and is looking forward to her discharge.”
Beaming with joy, her father informed, “She has now started to walk around, she is no longer facing any problems. As she has recovered, her happiness has returned to her and it is evident with the smile reflecting that on her face. When her ailment began, she would not be able to eat properly due to it. But now, I am happy that she has regained her appetite and eats her meals. On Saturday, after conducting a few check-ups the doctors will give her discharge.”
Mujmule said that they would not come so far, without the help of the people who helped him in his time of need, “We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the Rotary Club, Tata Trust and the Chief Minister’s Relief fund for helping us by supporting Dhanashree treatment. During our time of difficulty, many people came forward to help us, and this is largely due to the awareness created by My Medical Mantra through its organ donation campaign. We are thankful for your assistance
Dr S. Narayani, Zonal Director, Fortis Hospital, Mulund, said, “The act of giving by our associates and partners enabled us to conduct the transplant on baby Dhanashree; she is all set for discharge and her doting parents are eager to take her home. We are indebted to Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, Maharashtra, Tata Trust and Rotary Club of Mumbai, for their contribution”
Omprakash Shete, Chief, Chief Minister’s Relief Fund Cell, Maharashtra, said, “Chief Minister’s Relief Fund aims at providing immediate relief to the people in need of treatment for major illness. Our initiative ‘Project Aasha’ does just that by providing financial aid to children with cardiac diseases, belonging to disempowered backgrounds. Aiding Dhanashree’s surgery brings us one step closer in ensuring a healthy future for the children of the state.”
Shashi R Sharma, District Governor, Rotary Club of Mumbai, said, “Our contribution to enable Dhanashree’s surgery is another positive step towards serving the community. Dhanashree’s recovery has been exceptional and the smile on her and her parents face is our only reward; we are proud to have been associated with the hospital and with Dhanashree. With this success story, we will continue our endeavour to make a difference in people’s lives.”
