Nooran Bibi Bibi's Story
Nooran Bibi, a 67-year-old resident of Lahore, has been bravely fighting breast cancer for the past 1.5 years. It all began when she discovered a lump in her left breast and sought medical attention from a compassionate doctor. After a thorough evaluation, Nooran was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer, which required immediate intervention. In October 2022, she underwent a successful lumpectomy, which removed the cancerous tumor from her breast. However, her journey to reclaim complete health is not over yet.
Following her surgery, Nooran’s oncologist reviewed her final reports and recommended chemotherapy as the next step in her treatment plan. Nooran underwent chemotherapy sessions to combat the cancer cells that might still be lingering within her body. Additionally, due to being HER2 positive, her doctor prescribed a series of 18 Herceptin injections to specifically target and neutralize the HER2 protein, which contributes to the growth of certain breast cancers. Nooran has already received 12 of these injections, with six more remaining to complete her prescribed course of treatment.
Nooran’s determination to defeat cancer has been unwavering, but she faces a significant challenge—her inability to afford the medical management required to continue her treatment. She said with teary eyes:
“My utmost desire is to regain my health and continue my unwavering fight against breast cancer. However, the burden of medical expenses has become overwhelming, and I am unable to bear it alone. With all sincerity, I humbly request your donations to support me in completing the treatment.”
