Ali Akbar Shah's Story
51 years old Ali Akbar Shah had been suffering from chest pain for the last one month. The pain was mild at first but over the course of one month it radiated into his arms, back and jaw. Per due consultation and test reports of ECG and ECHO, the doctor immediately advised a coronary angiography. After the result of coronary angiography, Ali Akbar Shah was told that he has blockage in two of his main arteries. The doctor advised an immediate PCI- non-surgical procedure that uses a catheter (a thin flexible tube) to place a small structure called a stent to open up blood vessels in the heart that have been blocked or narrowed by plaque.
Ali Akbar used to work as a manual laborer in a construction firm, due to his withering age and heart disease, he has been out of work for a few years now. He relies on his sons for financial help. His sons too, are laborers who can barely manage to take care of their own families. With a monthly stipend of PKR 16000, Ali Akbar is in no position to afford the cost of his treatment.
“After a lifetime of hard work and manual labor, I thought I would spend my later years relaxing with my grandsons. Little did I know that I will live my life in constant shadow of death. I am tired of hanging in between.” -Ali Akbar Shah
