Shahid Hussain's Story
Shahid Hussain has to undergo Senning Procedure. Shahid Hussain, aged 8.5 years, a resident of Deer, was a lively young boy who loved playing outdoors. On multiple occasions, his parents observed that he got extremely breathless on mild exertion and his skin and nails turned blue. This became a cause of great worry for Shahid’s parents. They took him to a local hospital. The doctors there checked him thoroughly and performed an ECHO test which revealed that he was suffering from atrial septal defect, Transposition of the Great Arteries and Interventricular Septum (ASD, TGA, IVS). The cardiologist advised him to undergo an open heart surgery where the Senning procedure is to be performed. This procedure is an atrial switch heart operation which is performed for treatment of transposition of the great arteries.
Shahid’s parents had taken him to the local hospitals multiple times but no date was assigned for his surgery. Shahid Hussain has to undergo Senning Procedure. He is in an urgent need for this procedure, but financial constraint is a huge obstacle in his way to leading a healthy life. His father narrates their tale in the following manner.
“All parents want the best for their children. We want Shahid to get the best possible treatment from the best hospital. But, we do not have the financial resources to fulfil these wishes. We hardly make both ends meet with my monthly salary. Funding for a medical procedure from my own pocket is out of the question for me.”
