Tariq Niaz's Story
Tariq Niaz, aged 65, a resident of Lahore, is diabetic, hypertensive and has also been experiencing chest pains on a daily basis for the past 11 years. He has a history of cardiac complications and is on medication. Previously he has been treated for a heart attack and Angiography has also been done reporting his Triple vessel coronary artery disease (TVCAD). This is the severe form of Ischemic heart disease (IHD) that involves reduction of blood flow to the heart muscle due to build-up of plaque in the arteries of the heart. For this purpose, his cardiologist has advised open heart surgery for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). Unfortunately, financial constraint is hindering his way to a healthy life. He shares his story in the following words:
“Life has tested me in the last eleven years. I have endured pain but I never gave up. Now, I can not take it anymore. I have lost my job, and both my social and domestic life have been affected. My wife and three kids live with me in a joint family system. I am totally dependent on my brothers and am receiving family support worth PKR. 15,000 a month. In these circumstances I can not afford to fund my heart surgery.”
