Chief Minister MK Stalin expressed his consolation to Janani (14), a girl from Salem with two kidney failures, who was admitted to the Stanley Government Hospital in Chennai.
Thus the little girl was very happy. Everyone praised Chief Minister Stalin’s humanity.
Janani is the daughter of Rajanandini from Salem.
The girl, who suffers from a rare form of primary Hyperoxaluria, has two kidney failures.
In 2019, Janani was subjected to a kidney transplant at a private hospital in Coimbatore.
Rajanandini had donated one of her kidneys to save her daughter.
The transplanted kidney also failed in a few months.
Following this, Janani has been receiving dialysis treatment at government and private hospitals in Salem.
Rajanandini had sent a petition to the Chief Minister’s special cell seeking to save her daughter in this situation.
After the petition was brought to the notice of the Health Minister Subramanian, the Minister contacted the girl’s mother Rajanandini and inquired about the petition.
Following the order of the state government to bring her to Stanley Hospital, Janani was admitted to the Nephrology Department at Stanley Hospital on September 16.
A study by a team of specialists led by Dr Edwin, head of the nephrology department, found that the girl could be cured only if her kidneys and liver were transplanted at the same time.
So Janani registered and waited to receive an organ donation. Until then, doctors have decided to continue the dialysis treatment.
The condition of Janani, who hails from a poor family was brought to the attention of the Chief Minister. CM Stalin surprisingly went to Stanley Hospital in person and expressed consolation to Janani and her mother Rajanandini.
The Chief Minister then inquired about the treatment being given to the girl by Dr Balaji, the Dean of the hospital, and Dr Edwin, Head of the Department of nephrology, and assured that the Government would continue to provide the necessary assistance.
Everyone praised this humanitarian act of the Chief Minister.
