Said Rehman's Story
Said Rehman, a 68 years old, hails from the Mardan district of the country and suffers from triple vessel coronary artery disease (TVCAD). In this condition, narrowing in three major arteries occur, which supply the heart itself. Said has already undergone the angiography one month ago, and now for the treatment of this condition, he has been recommended an open heart surgery. CABG stands for coronary artery bypass graft and is the recommended surgical procedure used for treating ischemic heart disease. The main aim of a CABG is to improve the overall blood flow by diverting blood around the clogged arteries. The better blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart efficiently ameliorate the overall condition.
Said’s five-membered family lives in an 8-Marla house that was granted by his parents. Jobless himself, Said Rehman is worried about the expenses pertaining to this surgery.
“My son labours all day and brings home a monthly sum of 12 grand rupees. We barely manage provisions in this scant amount, even thinking about a coronary artery bypass graft is out of the question. In fact, if it was not for Transparent Hands, I would have not even considered the idea in the first place. But something about the way things have happened in the last few days gives me hope. Maybe, I shouldn’t give up just yet”
