Fatima Bibi's Story
Fatima awaits Excision Surgery. Before you dive into Fatima Bibi’s tale of woes, please know that your help can save her. Your donation, however small it may be, will go towards arranging Fatima’s life-saving treatment. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Fatima’s excision surgery.
For the last one year, thirty four years old Fatima Bibi has been feeling pain and stiffness in her neck which radiated to her upper arms as well. It was diagnosed to be an Intradural Extra Medullary Cervical Spinal Mass (SOL). An intradural extramedullary tumor is a spinal cord tumor that causes spinal cord compression — nerves in and around the spinal cord are compressed as the tumor grows in size.
To treat this condition, Fatima Bibi has to undergo excisional surgery under general anesthesia. In this surgery, the surgeon will surgically remove Fatima’s cervical SOL and she will be able to continue with her normal life as before.
The only thing standing between Fatima and the treatment she needs is her financial condition. Fatima’s family is unable to afford her treatment. Fatima’s father passed away a long time ago. Therefore, she financially relies on her brother. Her brother is a manual laborer who works on daily wages. He hardly manages to make 15000 per month. With this income, he is hardly able to manage his utilities and bills. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange for his sister’s surgery. He told us:
“When our father was on his deathbed, I promised him that I would take care of Fatima in every way I can. Lately, I feel like I have been failing her and my father. I do not have the means for Fatima’s surgery. I don’t know what will happen now.”
At last, after exhausting her resources at private doctors and hospitals. Fatima Bibi has registered her case with Transparent Hands. The only thing standing between Fatima and treatment she needs is financial constraint. As Fatima awaits Excision Surgery, therefore, we request you to please donate for her surgery and help us save an innocent life.
