Tasneem Khan's Story
“Sometimes she screams in pain when she tries to stand on her feet. But the helplessness; it just kills us inside. I can’t hold back my tears when my mother asks me; “will I ever be able to walk again?” She is giving up all hopes and her mental condition is not stable; making her depressed all the time. We’ve no means to fund her treatment. You’re our only hope. Please help my mother.” – Tasneem’s daughter
68 years old Tasneem Khan is a mother of 4 children. Her 2 sons are married and residing in other city while her younger daughter stays home and the elder one works in a call center.
Around 5 years ago, Tasneem was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee – it affected her joints, the cartilage, and the synovium in the knee joint. This disease has damaged her bones causing pain and stiffness. She took treatment from a local hospital but couldn’t get relief. Her symptoms have worsened over time and the doctor has advised her to undergo total knee replacement as this is the only way she could stand on her feet again.
Tasneem’s family is already struggling to survive. It is nearly impossible for them to pay for her treatment. Her husband and daughter earn only 30,000 PKR collectively per month. Even if they start to save, it will take them years to arrange the full amount required for Tasneem’s surgical treatment.
