A four-month-old Aditi from Solapur, India suffered from a rare Alcapa, a condition in which the artery reverses the blood supply from the heart which causes recurring heart attacks. It is observed only in one in three lakh children.
After being diagnosed Aditi underwent an urgent 9 hour surgery surgery to reposition her artery, by a team of six doctors in a hospital in Mumbai. Aditi’s operation was a success and she escaped death by an inch. Her survival is nothing short of a miracle!

At the age of 3 Cameron Motts was affected by Rasmussen’s Syndrome, a condition that causes destruction of one side of the brain. Her condition would often cause up to 10 seizures a day.
According to the doctors, the only way to stop her seizures was to perform a medical procedure called a hemispherectomy, that is, removing the non-functional half of the brain. Imagine someone telling you that your child is going to be operated to get rid of half her brain!
It was a tough decision to make but in the end her parents agreed and Cameron successfully got through the procedure. And today little cam, as her family calls her, is a healthy 15 year old who loves to dance!
