Muhammad Umer's Story
Muhammad Umer was born with a deadly heart disease. He is just a one-year-old baby but he has suffered more than many adults do in a lifetime. Only you can save Muhammad Umer’s heart. Therefore, we request you to please donate generously for Muhammad Umer’s VSD closure.
Muhammad Umer lives with his distressed parents in Dera Ismail Khan. He has been suffering from chest pain and fever since birth. His parents took him to the hospital for a checkup. The doctor suggested some tests and X-rays. After seeing the results, the cardiologist diagnosed him with Doubly committed subarterial VSD (DCSA-VSD), also known as infundibular VSD with pulmonary hypertension (PHT). In Infundibular VSD, the aortic cusp (right cusp) is sucked into the defect (VSD: a hole in the walls of the heart) due to a systolic venturi effect that sucks the cusp when the heart contracts.
Upon consultation, the cardiologist advised an open heart surgery for VSD closure for him. Unfortunately, Umer’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of the surgery. Umer’s father hardly manages to earn PKR 20,000 per month. With this income, he barely manages to take care of the household expenses and utility bills. In these circumstances, he is in no position to arrange for Muhammad Umer’s VSD Closure surgery. Umer’s mother shared her distress:
“My son was born with this deadly heart disease. I couldn’t bear to see my innocent baby in pain. We want to help him win this battle, but we need the support of a generous donor to do so. Please help us.”
After a lot of anguish, Muhammad Umer’s parents have requested Transparent Hands for help. We have promised to arrange his surgery as soon as possible. We urge you to donate for Umer’s VSD closure without any delay. Only your support can save Umer from a terrible fate. Donate generously and save Muhammad Umer’s heart.
