Heart in her stomach!!!

Hello; Vivek here, hoping that all of you are fine and doing well. Today’s topic is a very special and a very unimaginable one. Everyone has organs which functions properly, but today you will read about a special girl who is completely different.

This little girl above is completely normal but her placement of organs in her body is abnormal. Virsaviya Borun born in Russia is facing a very rare condition which is so rare that it affects five in a million people. She was born with Pentalogy of Cantrell a rare disorder that makes her heart and intestines sit outside of her stomach. She’s also missing her diaphragm, parts of her chest bones and some abdominal muscles.

Her mother brought her to the US as a doctor agreed to help them. Her mother Dari even started a YouCaring fund, more and more people started donating. They totally raised an amount of $70,000 dollars which will be used for her medical expenses and her surgery.

Doctors have recommend Virsaviya wait a few years before going under surgeries because of her high blood pressure. She loves running but it is strictly restricted, she loves to play but it’s a total danger and she has to wear soft clothes all the time. At last they don’t even have a family, only mother and daughter. Her mother says, you people are our family, keep supporting us.

Even doctors gave up when she was born. Doctors told she can’t survive but Virsaviya came out of the chaos and now she is happy with what she has. This story makes us feel sad but on the other hand it even makes us learn so much.
1. Don’t give up
2. Believe in yourself
3. Be happy with what you have and more

That’s it for today, hope you all enjoyed and comment down your thoughts. Thank you reading, following, subscribing, clapping, sharing and commenting. Be safe and take care, meet you all in the next blog, till then peace out!!! (:
