Salma Jamal's Story
25-year-old Salma Jamal hails from the district Mardan of the country and is a proud mother of three children. Little does this introduction tell you about the pain through which Salma is going through these days. What these opening remarks don’t tell you about Salma is that she has a large ovarian cyst. Almost two months have elapsed since the diagnosis, two miserable months, might we add. At first, it seemed as if popping pills would take care of the problem. Unfortunately, things have become complicated since then, and now, surgical removal of the troublesome cyst is the only option Salma is left with. The prescribed surgical procedure is called ovarian cystectomy.
Now, in case you don’t know much about an ovarian cystectomy, let us tell you a bit about this surgical procedure. It is a procedure that can be used to remove cysts at any point in life, and typically lasts about an hour. Apart from a few post-surgery risks, this procedure is one of the safest ways of treating ovarian cysts. But despite its effectiveness, members from the underprivileged section of the society hesitate to go for it. Why? Well, it is quite expensive! And this is exactly why Salma Jamal has asked Transparent Hands to help her as well!
“All my husband can bring home monthly is a meagre amount of 15,000 PKR. The money is barely enough to manage provisions for our ten membered family. Affording a surgery is simply out of question. And if there is one comfort left in my life, it is the thought that there are people who will help me by donating for me at Transparent Hands.”– Salma Jamal
