Shehnaz Bibi's Story
Shehnaz Bibi, 43 years old, has been suffering from multinodular goiter for the past 7 years. Initially, she treated her condition with medicines and visited local healers, but she did not improve. Over time, her thyroid swelling has enlarged causing uncomfortable symptoms like difficulty in breathing while lying down, weight loss, and chronic fatigue.
“If I try to walk just to the nearby market, I get tired as if I just climbed a mountain. It’s hard to sleep too because the swelling presses down on my throat and interrupts breathing. So even though I feel exhausted, I can barely get any sleep.”- Shehnaz Bibi
After consultation with a doctor, Shehnaz Bibi has been advised surgery- a subtotal thyroidectomy-but her husband is not financially stable enough to pay the medical bills. He works as a rickshaw driver and only earns 15,000 PKR a month. With this income alone, he has to support his four small children, along with his wife. All out of options, Shehnaz, and her husband recently visited Transparent Hands to ask for assistance.
Shehnaz now needs your donations in order to completely recover from her condition. Please consider donating to her so her surgery can be conducted at the earliest.
