Donate for a Heart - A fundraising campaign

Srivalli of 'Cooking 4 all Seasons' is organising a fund-raising campaign - 'Donate for a Heart' to help Anita Lakshmi, who is sufferring from coronary heart disease.

In Valli's words -

Lakshmi is 28 years old and suffers from Coronary Artery disease. She has two children, aged 3 & 6 and was undergoing treatment in Vijaya Hospital. The entire operation and other costs will go over 5 -6 lakhs (about 15000 USD). Lakshmi needs to be operated within 5-6 months. She is currently prescribed heavy dosage of medicines to sustain. It all depends on how well she responds till then to the medicines. Her health is deteriorating. So we are not sure how stable her condition is.

It was an emotionally moving experience when I visited them. I was daunted by their helplessness and the hope that was lingering somewhere in their look. The children were happy getting a visitor and even got excited posing for a picture. But I am sure the little ones didn't know how serious their mom's condition is. There are many in this condition in India. But we really can't help them all. We can help only those near to us. I hope you will find in your heart to help this cause and give those little children a hope to live!
