Shamim Bibi's Story
Shamim Bibi has been fighting cancer for a long time. She has already undergone two surgeries and multiple diagnostic tests and procedures, but her battle against cancer isn’t over yet. She needs help for the next treatment advised by the doctor. Support Shamim’s cancer treatment to make it possible for her to take care of her six children.
Shamim Bibi, a 46-year-old resident of Jhang, had a lump in her right breast three years ago. She went to the doctor for a consultation. After a thorough evaluation and diagnostic tests, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The doctor advised Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) which involves removing the breast and the associated parts. Her surgery was performed in January 2021. However, cancer spread and reached her ovaries. In July 2021, she underwent a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy (TAH) and Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy (BSO). The doctor prescribed some medicines after this surgery, but a lump appeared again on her chest wall. She needs to undergo another excision for the removal of this lump and some diagnostic tests, but she cannot afford to pay for them due to financial constraints.
Her husband is the only earner in the family. He earns just PKR 15,000 per month. With this meager salary, he struggles to support his family of eight. He cannot afford to pay for Shamim’s life-saving cancer treatment. She expressed her distress with the following words:
“I’m fighting this stubborn cancer not just for myself but also for my six children who need their mother. If you’re reading this, help me and my family without any delay.”

Shamim Bibi's Story
Shamim Bibi, a 46-year-old resident of Jhang, faced a difficult journey with breast cancer. After finding a lump in her right breast three years ago, she was diagnosed with the disease following diagnostic tests. In January 2021, she underwent a Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) to remove the breast and associated parts, but cancer spread to her ovaries leading to a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy (TAH) and Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy (BSO) in July 2021.
Despite being prescribed medication, another lump appeared on her chest wall, requiring excision for removal and subsequent Chemotherapy. On August 18, 2022, Dr. Ahmed Fawad performed the operation at Lahore Care Hospital and she was discharged after four days. Now in the healing phase, Shamim is preparing for Chemotherapy to continue her journey toward recovery. We are thankful for your generous donation to Transparent Hands.
