Kalsoom Wadood's Story
Before we explain the gory details of Kalsoom’s ailments, we want you to know that no medical jargon can explain the immense pain she is going through. So please donate for Kalsoom’s thyroidectomy and help us ease her life.
For the last five years, Kalsoom has been suffering from Hyperthyroidism, also called overactive thyroid. It is a condition where the thyroid releases high levels of thyroid hormone into the body. This condition can make your metabolism speed up. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism include a rapid heartbeat, weight loss, increased appetite and anxiety.
Therefore, to save her from the threat of cancer, the doctor has advised her to get a Subtotal Thyroidectomy. Subtotal Thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure in which the majority of the thyroid gland is removed. However, the surgeon leaves some part of the thyroid tissue to achieve a normal thyroid function. After her doctor’s advice, Kalsoom and her husband have circled back and forth to various local hospitals in search of a free treatment but all their efforts have gone in vain.
Kalsoom cannot afford the hefty cost of her surgery at any private hospital. Her son is the sole earner of the family. He works as a manual labourer with a construction company and hardly earns enough to feed his family. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange for Kalsoom’s surgery. She told us:
“For the last five years, I have not been able to breathe freely. All the time, I feel like I am on the verge of a breakdown. Whoever is reading this, please help me. I am at my wit’s end.”
Finally, as a last resort, they have registered their case with Transparent Hands. We hope that we will be able to arrange free surgery for her. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Kalsoom’s thyroidectomy and ease her life.
Disclaimer: Transparent Hands makes sure that all the patients get surgery in time. If a patient requires urgent surgery and his/her condition is serious, Transparent Hands conducts the surgery immediately. In the meantime, his/her campaign stays active on the website until we raise the complete funding.
