The friend suggested that she should consult a physician since it might be cancer. This further increased Razia’s worry. She immediately got herself checked from the local hospital. After thorough testing and check-up, she was found to have cervical and axillary lymphadenopathy. Furthermore, the doctor advised work up for the diagnosis of her disease. She was also advised to have an excision and biopsy.
Razia’s worries have only amplified since her consultation as she does not have the means to pay for the advised medical procedures. She works as a house maid and earns only PKR 8000 per month. She has three daughters and one son, all dependent on her earning as her husband left her about six years ago.
“It is hard being a single mother. I worry about my children and how I will fulfil their needs, all day long. On top of everything, my own health is compromised now. Who will take care of my children if something happens to me?”– says Razia with tears in her eyes.
