Muskan Sohail's Story
“I want to study and gain higher education but my illness has made me drop out of school. My parents cannot afford my surgery. I need your kind support to recover completely and continue my studies again.” – Muskan Sohail
Muskan is a 17 years old bright student who was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome at a hospital in Lahore around one year ago. Evans Syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder in which the immune system destroys the body’s red blood cells, white blood cells and/or platelets .
Her parents took her to various government and private hospitals and doctors advised splenectomy for permanent relief from her painful condition. Splenectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your spleen. The spleen is an organ that sits under your rib cage on the upper left side of your abdomen. It helps fight infection and filters unneeded material, such as old or damaged blood cells, from your blood.
To get free surgical facility, Muskan’s parents contacted different social welfare organizations and government hospitals but none of them came forward to help them.
Muskan was studying in grade 9 but she had to quit school due to painful symptoms like, fever, frequent headaches, shortness of breath, low BP, irregular heartbeat and decreased appetite. Her blood test shows low count of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.
Her father is a carpenter with monthly income of 24000 PKR. She has 4 siblings and all of them are school going. They live in a small house. Her father is really worried about the money required for her surgery.
When he got to know about Transparent Hands, Muskan’s father requested for her free surgical treatment.
Muskan is scheduled for her Splenectomy at Akram Medical Complex, through Transparent Hands. Kindly donate generously for her surgery and let her start school again.
