Muhammad Afnan's Story

Muhammad Afnan, a two-year-old resident of Kasur, has been battling numerous health challenges since birth. His parents have witnessed their beloved child struggle with shortness of breath, cyanosis (a bluish discoloration of the skin), fever, chest pain, and an inability to gain weight. Concerned about their son’s deteriorating health, they sought medical assistance at a nearby hospital, where they were referred to a cardiologist.

After undergoing a series of diagnostic tests and evaluations, he was diagnosed with a partial atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVVO), and trace mitral regurgitation (MR). These complex cardiac conditions have significantly impacted his overall well-being and pose a significant threat to his life. The cardiac surgeon has advised him to undergo complete atrioventricular canal (CAVC) repair, a critical surgical procedure that aims to correct the structural abnormalities in his heart.

Muhammad Afnan’s father, the sole earner in the family, earns a monthly income of only 32,000 rupees. The financial burden of the necessary surgical expenses is overwhelming, leaving the family in a state of despair. In his own words, Muhammad Afnan’s father appeals for financial assistance, saying,
“My son’s condition is deteriorating rapidly, and we are devastated that we cannot afford the life-saving surgery he desperately needs. We are reaching out to kind-hearted individuals for help, as we cannot bear to see our precious child suffer any longer.”

Muhammad Afnan's Story

In the heartwarming town of Kasur, a beacon of hope and resilience emerged in the form of 2-year-old Muhammad Afnan. His journey, laden with unique challenges, became a testament to the power of medical expertise and community support.

On the 28th of November 2023, Muhammad Afnan embarked on the path to healing as he was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital in Lahore. The compassionate care of Dr. Asim Khan, a distinguished surgeon renowned for his expertise, played a pivotal role in the intricate operation that followed on the 29th of November 2023. The procedure, involving a Median-Sternotomy, a Single Patch pericardial patch to address the primum Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), and a delicate Mitral Valve (MV) repair with the closure of the cleft in the Anterior Mitral Leaflet (AML), aimed to restore the vibrancy to Afnan's young heart.

Under the skilled hands of Dr. Asim Khan, the surgery unfolded seamlessly, addressing the complexities of Afnan's condition with precision and care. A mere five days later, on the 3rd of December 2023, Afnan joyfully left Ittefaq Hospital, his condition deemed satisfactory by the medical team. The success of the surgery not only relieved Afnan and his family but also illuminated a path towards a healthier and more vibrant future. 

This tale of triumph wouldn't have been possible without the unwavering support of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation (PCHF) and the compassionate donors associated with Transparent Hands. Their collective generosity made it possible for Muhammad Afnan to receive the critical medical care needed, showcasing the transformative impact of community-driven philanthropy.

Muhammad Afnan's family extends heartfelt gratitude to PCHF and Transparent Hands donors, acknowledging the profound impact of their selfless contributions. This success story stands as a testament to the strength of compassion, collaboration, and the remarkable transformations that occur when hearts unite to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need.
