Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has come forward to help such innocent children.

Foundation made in memory of daughter

Finance Minister Suresh Khanna, who is on a US tour, told the Chief Minister that Milli Seth, the founder and president of the foundation, is a resident of Delhi. She used to run her own firm in Delhi while her husband Himanshu Seth worked in multinational IT company. In the year 2005, their younger daughter Saloni was born, who had congenital heart disease (congenital heart disease). First wrong treatment in Delhi in 2007 and then in 2010 he was declared incurable. The treatment of this disease was not possible in India. This led the couple to shift to the US, where Saloni was rescued by Stanford Children's Hospital in 2011 and recovered. But in 2018, he lost Saloni to complications due to delayed treatment earlier. After this the couple laid the foundation of Saloni Heart Foundation in the year 2019 in the name of their daughter. Since then, this foundation has been managing the treatment of newborn children suffering from this disease in India. In this sequence, he is now committed to establish the first Pediatric Cardiology Unit in Uttar Pradesh. According to the Finance Minister, Founder Mili Seth says that there is a lack of training infrastructure and specialization for such diseases in India. At the same time, doctors of Indian origin are handling the command of top US hospitals, who are ready to fill this gap in India by joining their campaign.

23 top super specialists of the world are associated with the foundation

Milli Seth, founder of Saloni Heart Foundation, told that 23 super specialist pediatric cardiologists and pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons of the world are associated with her organization. Through these, she provides free medical advice to the families of children related to this disease in India. In the US, the cost of this one doctor's advice is more than 2 thousand dollars i.e. more than 1.5 lakh rupees. Along with this, he also conducts surgeries for children through panel doctors. Not only this, through the Foundation, since 2020, 11 such youths of the country have also been given full scholarships for MBBS course, who had qualified NEET, but did not have the money for the course. Along with fees, laptops have also been made available to such students. Mili Seth told that her daughter's surgery was done by Dr. Reddy. She wanted to become a surgeon like him. We are trying to keep our daughter's dream alive by helping children who are suffering from such a serious disease in Uttar Pradesh.
