Shama Yousaf's Story
Shama Yousaf, 44 years old, was diagnosed with breast cancer approximately 1 year ago. By the time her disease was diagnosed it had metastasized, so her doctors immediately set a treatment plan into action. Shortly after diagnosis, she underwent 8 cycles of chemotherapy over a 7-month duration. When the course finished, she was advised to have a modified radical mastectomy surgery for the removal of her right breast, which contains the tumor.
Shama has been recommended to have this surgery at the earliest to prevent metastasis again, but her financial limitations are getting in the way. Her husband, working as a factory worker, only earns 25,000 PKR/month. After paying their rent, which is 10,000 PKR/month, this couple has barely any resources left to look after their own needs and those of their three teenagers.
When Shama asked Transparent Hands for help, she was promptly registered because her life and future depend on the help she gets from this platform.
“There is no telling when I could get sick again and I do not want to relapse. My body has never felt worse than it did during chemo. I have suffered enough and my family has suffered enough. I only want to get well, so I am reaching out for help.” – Shama Yousaf
