Uswa Hamid's Story
Before you proceed to read about the details of Uswa Hamid’s ailment, please know that we can help her. Your donation, however small it may be, will change Uswa’s life for the better. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Uswa’s excision surgery as much as you can.
Three months ago, thirteen years old Uswa Hamid developed a lump on her left breast. Her mother immediately took her to the hospital. After the check-up, the doctor advised her to undergo screening. After screening, the doctor has advised Uswa to undergo a Wide Local Excision surgery in which the lump of her left breast will be removed. A wide local excision (WLE) is a surgical procedure to remove a small area of diseased or problematic tissue with a margin of normal tissue.
Unfortunately, Uswa’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of an Excision surgery. Uswa’s father is the sole earner of the family. He works as a salesman and hardly manages to earn PKR 25000 per month. In this measly income, he has to raise a family of five. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange for his daughter’s breast excision surgery. Uswa’s mother told us:
“In this age, we have been conditioned to associate lumps with cancer. Therefore, when I noticed a lump on my daughter’s breast, I immediately took her to the hospital. Whoever is reading this, I request you all to please help me make my daughter’s life easier.”
After a lot of distress, Uswa has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get her happy and healthy as soon as possible. But, we need your help with that. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Uswa’s excision surgery as much as you can. Donate now!
