In a beacon of hope, a life-saving heart transplant was successfully performed on an 11-year-old girl at Sri Padamavati Children’s Heart Center in Tirupati on Tuesday. This marks the 10th successful heart transplant at the hospital, according to the hospitals sources.

The young girl, hailing from Vanasthalipuram in Telangana, battled against crippling heart complications. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, doctors at Padmavati Children’s Heart Center registered her with Jeevan Dhan, a dedicated organ donation trust.

A 50-year-old man from Srikakulam tragically succumbed to a brain stroke. With the family’s decision to donate his organs, a lifeline was offered to the young girl.
