Sania Abdul Moeed's Story
Sania Abdul Moeed, aged 34 years, a resident of Karachi has been suffering from shoulder pain and breathing problems for the past thirteen years. At first, the doctor gave her medication for symptomatic relief. Unfortunately she did not get better. She then visited a homeopathic doctor. Unfortunately the medication prescribed by him also did not make her feel any better. Later she visited a private hospital where she was diagnosed with Multinodular Goiter and was advised surgery by the doctor. Multinodular goitre is an enlarged thyroid gland on the front of the neck where there are many lumps (nodules) that appear within it. This is the most common thyroid gland disorder.
The doctor has advised Sania Abdul Moeed to undergo Thyroidectomy. Thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure in which the thyroid gland is removed. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, Sania Abdul Moeed and her family are unable to afford the hefty cost of her surgery. She narrates her woes as following:
“I have been fighting this monstrous disease for the past thirteen years. At first, I took medicines for temporary relief but now it is vital for me to undergo a surgery. I feel helpless. My husband is a Madrassah teacher who earns PKR.15,000 a month. We live in a rented house. We have two children. In this income, we have to run the house, support our children and also buy my medicines. We can barely make our ends meet. In these circumstances it is very difficult for us to afford my surgery.”
Finally, as a last resort, they have registered their case with Transparent Hands. We hope that we will be able to arrange a surgery for her free of cost. For that we will require your assistance. Please donate for Sania Abdul Moeed’s Total thyroidectomy and ease her pain.
