Asma Noreen's Story
Asma Noreen, aged 49, hails from the Mianwali district of the country and suffers from left breast cancer. The shocking diagnosis was made almost six months ago and Asma’s life has not been the same since. While chemotherapy has been going on since the diagnosis, it doesn’t promise that cancer won’t spread. To treat the breast carcinoma and prevent it spreading from the breast to other body parts, Asma has been advised an MRM and axillary clearance. We are sure that not many of you are aware of MRM in detail, so let us talk a bit about it for better understanding.
MRM stands for modified radical mastectomy. It refers to a surgical procedure in which the entire breast is removed except the chest muscles. The surgical procedure is a recommended treatment for breast cancer most of the time. On the other hand, axillary clearance refers to the removal of lymph nodes and tumorous tissues from the armpit region of the body. In Asma’s case, she has been suggested a left axillary clearance. These two surgical procedures can put an end to Asma’s misery, but there is a glitch in this all will be well story. Asma’s family is going through a period of a financial crisis.
“20,000. That is all that we have got to manage our family of three. My husband earns it by computing for a private company all day long. Food, bills, my daughter’s school fee, we already have a lot to manage within this 20K and sometimes it is simply not enough. Even with the knowledge that my life is at severe risk in case of delayed treatment, I know there isn’t just enough in the family bank for my breast cancer treatment”-said Asma
