Sheja Gasana is 4 year child and has been struggling with ailments for the last two years with tumor in the brain despite the fact that parents wondered in different local hospitals at Kanombe Military Hospital, CHUK and King Faysal but the condition persisted.

“Local Doctors always told us hopelessly that the child cannot heal either by operating him or not and as a result they released the parents from the Hospital. Thanks to the Medanta Hospital that fueled our hope by telling us that our child can be normal again,” she says.

He argued that Medanta Hospital confirmed the good news that operations would be successful with good treatment as the surgery would be undertaken by the 40 doctors to remove the tumor.

Meanwhile, the parents are in their young lives of their marriage and sadly all the family properties almost got exhausted in the previous last years of medication of the young Sheja.
