Mehar Khan's Story
Mehar Khan, 80 years-of-age, has been suffering from a brain tumour for the last six months. He has been feeling weak for a while but didn’t take it seriously. Recently, Mehar Khan developed high fever and weakness in the right side of his upper body and both his lower limbs.
His nephews rushed him to the nearest local hospital. There the doctors ran a few tests, including a CT scan and an MRI and the grandfather of three, Mehar Khan was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The results in all of the tests conducted on Mehar Khan indicated that he needs surgery as soon as possible. The doctors advised him to get a craniotomy for removal of the tumour.
For better understanding, a craniotomy involves making an incision in the scalp and removing a window of bone from the skull. This allows access to the inside of the skull and brain, and the tumour is excised (removed) and biopsied.
When Mehar Khan was told that he needed surgery and the cost of it, he broke down in tears. He lives with his daughters, who are all married and has a son who is also married. He works for the Pakistan Army and earns about PKR 23,000 a month. He supports his father as well as his own family from this income. No matter how much money Mehar Khan would save or borrow, it wouldn’t cover the expenses of such a major operation.
Luckily, Mehar Khan’s nephews found out about Transparent Hands and got their grandfather registered with the organization in priority.
