Umaima Khan's Story

Umaima Khan, four years old, a resident of Bhakkar, has been suffering from a congenital heart defect. The defect included the symptoms of Tachycardia and on and off high grade fever since birth. Her parents noticed her unusual pattern of often falling sick.They got concerned and took her for a checkup. Upon consultation, the doctor advised her to undergo a number of diagnostic tests to determine her illness. Umaima’s reports revealed that she is suffering from Tetralogy of Fallot.Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a group of 4 congenital heart defects. The doctor then advised her to undergo Open Heart Surgery. Tetralogy of Fallot must be repaired with open-heart surgery, either soon after birth or later in infancy. The goal of surgery is to repair the defects of tetralogy of Fallot so the heart can work as normally as possible.
Repairing the defects can greatly improve a child’s health and quality of life. Umaima’s father is a laborer and hardly manages to earn PKR. 15,000. In these dark times and a meager income it is impossible for Umaima’s parents to afford the hefty cost of this procedure.
