Shamim Bibi's Story

Shamim Bibi, a 48-year-old resident of Jhang, found a lump in her right breast that led her on a tumultuous journey of fighting breast cancer. After a thorough evaluation, she received a devastating diagnosis from her doctor. The recommended course of action was a Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) surgery, which was performed in January 2021. However, the cancer later spread to her ovaries, necessitating the removal of her ovaries in July 2021. Despite being on medications, a new lump appeared on her chest wall, prompting the need for further surgery.

Transparent Hands played a crucial role in Shamim’s medical journey, facilitating her Excision + Metastatic workup in August 2022. The reports were reviewed by an oncologist, who advised chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In August 2023, Shamim underwent these treatments. However, during a follow-up, she was presented with an ovarian mass and ascites. The oncologist recommended chemotherapy once again. Shamim’s medical history includes MRM, TAH, BSO, Excision, and Metastatic workup.

She lives in a small house in Jhang, with her nephew and three children. She has no financial support. Thus, she relies on her nephew, who is the sole earner in the family, making approximately 20,000/- per month as a daily wager. Her nephew has to pay utility bills amounting to PKR 3,000 along with grocery and daily expenses.  Due to her financial crisis, she struggles to afford the necessary treatment expenses.

In the face of these immense challenges, Shamim’s courage remains unwavering. She appeals to your compassionate hearts:

“Cancer has taken a toll on my life, but I refuse to surrender. I yearn to overcome this disease and be there for my children. I humbly request your support during this difficult time.”
