9-year-old thalassemia patient’s wish to be a doctor gets fulfilled!Becomes a doctor at Narayana Health City for a day

Bengaluru, 7th October 2022:  Beholding its vision of “Health for all. All for health”, Narayana Health City recently helped 9-year-old patient with thalassemia, whose dream is to be a doctor, get a glimpse into the profession. Hailing from Irutty, a small taluk in Kerala, Fathima A.K was suffering from thalassemia. During her visit to the city early this week for her post-transplant (had undergone Bone Marrow Transplant) checkup Fathima had expressed her desire to be a doctor when she grows up. Hearing this Narayana Health City in association with Make-A-Wish Foundation gave her an opportunity to be a doctor at the Department of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation for a day.

Speaking about her experience, Fathima A.K said, “It was the best day of my life. It is exhilarating to know how their work impacts our lives. I am looking forward to recovering fast and putting in all the necessary hard work to be a doctor.”

Fathima was given an opportunity to attend to the patients along with treating consultants on the team during the morning hours. she was briefly taught how to use a stethoscope and examine patients. She assisted the doctors not only in the OPD, she also went along with them to meet the inpatients.

Commenting on the initiative, Dr. Sunil Bhat, Director and Clinical Lead of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Blood & Marrow Transplantation Narayana Health Network Hospitals, said, “Conditions like thalassemia, cancer, etc are mired with misinformation or misconceptions. In fact, the lack of knowledge tends to create despair in the minds of the patients. Initiatives like this gives them an opportunity to think beyond the condition and above all instill desire and hope, which in turn can have a positive impact on the treatment as well.”
