Donate to Assist Muhammad Umar’s Sinus Venosus ASD with PAPVC
Muhammad Umar's Story
Muhammad Umar, aged 2 years, a resident of Lahore was experiencing repeated episodes of chest infection and fever since birth. His parents took him to the hospital and upon cardiac evaluation he was diagnosed to have been suffering from Sinus venosus ASD with PAPVC. The most common form of PAPVC is one in which a right upper pulmonary vein connects to the right atrium or the superior vena cava. This form is almost always associated with a sinus venosus type of atrial septal defect (ASD). Open Heart Surgery is advised for total correction for Sinus venosus ASD with PAPVC in order to prevent ongoing complications. But unfortunately his family is unable to afford this surgical procedure. Therefore, donate to assist Muhammad Umar’s Sinus venosus ASD with PAPVC that has been advised by his cardiologist. His father shares their pain in the following words:
“I am a barberer by profession and earn PKR. 15,000 per month. With this meagre amount I have to provide for my parents, wife and two children and also save some for expenditure on Umar’s wellbeing. In these circumstances I can not afford to fund his surgery.”
In hopes of a brighter, disease free future, Muhammad Umar awaits your donations to undergo the first step towards an improved life. Transparent Hands will collaborate with The Pakistan Children Heart foundation to cover the medical expenses. But it doesn’t mean we will not be needing you. Donate generously for total correction of Muhammad Umar’s Sinus venosus ASD with PAPVC so he can materialise his dream of leading a healthy life.
