Khalid Mehmood's Story
45-year-old Khalid Mehmood’s heart problem started 15 years ago when he experienced severe angina at work. He was rushed to the hospital, where his ECG was done. His doctor prescribed medicines and recommended angiography for further investigation, however, due to a shortage of money, Khalid was unable to get the procedure done. He continued taking the prescribed medicines but a few years later, he had a heart attack. In the following decade, he had two more heart attacks, the last one just a few months ago.
“It feels like we almost lost him three times. We are all in a constant state of anxiety now, thinking that any minute, we could receive a call telling us he has had another heart attack. It is only a matter of time before he has an attack and doesn’t make it. The worst part is that the condition is treatable, yet, we are helpless at the hands of our financial circumstances.” – Khalid’s son
After Khalid’s last heart attack, he was admitted to a local hospital. The doctors performed his angiography which revealed that he has triple vessel disease- a condition in which the three main vessels of the heart are blocked. They advised him to undergo open-heart surgery as soon as possible but failed to give him an urgent appointment. Since then, Khalid has been trying to get an appointment as early as possible but has not been successful. With only a salary of 15,000 to support himself, his wife and three children, he cannot afford to have the surgery at a private hospital.
Khalid has approached Transparent Hands to request urgent help. He hopes that with enough donations, he can finally have the surgery that will put his life out of danger.
