Zafar Iqbal's Story

Zafar, a 70-year-old resident of Lahore, finds himself in the grips of a formidable adversary: cancer. Over the past two months, Zafar has been grappling with persistent pain and swelling in his right lower jaw, along with difficulty eating due to the spontaneous loss of his lower right molar. Concerned by his worsening condition, he sought medical attention, leading to an incisional biopsy performed on January 22, 2024. The results yielded a chilling revelation: Zafar is battling alveolar carcinoma, broadly speaking squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity.

Upon learning of his diagnosis, Zafar’s world was shaken to its core. Compounding the gravity of his situation is the harsh reality of limited financial means, rendering the necessary surgical intervention beyond his reach.

In his hour of need, Zafar said in despair:

“I never thought I’d have to deal with something so tough. These past months have been really hard for me. I’ve felt all sorts of emotions and worries about what might happen next. I’m used to handling responsibilities as a dad and someone who cares about my community. But fighting cancer is too much for me to handle alone. With everyone’s support, I feel stronger and ready to face this difficulty, get better, and enjoy life again.”

Zafar turned to Transparent Hands, understanding that collective support could be his lifeline. Without hesitation, a campaign was launched to rally behind Zafar’s cause, aiming to raise crucial funds for his surgery—a vital step towards reclaiming his health and vitality.

Please help underprivileged patients

As Zafar courageously confronts the daunting spectre of oral carcinoma, the campaign emerges as a beacon of hope. In the spirit of unity and compassion, let us unite in support of Zafar’s journey, ensuring he receives the medical intervention essential to his well-being. Together, we possess the power to effect profound change, ignite renewed hope in Zafar and his loved ones, and illuminate the path toward healing and restoration.

Please Note: In certain situations, we proceed with the patient's surgery/medical procedure despite incomplete funding displayed on the website. Following the surgery/medical procedure, we persist in collecting funds and maintain the campaign on the website until funding is secured in full. Hospitals have granted us a grace period for bill payment.
