Arham Ali 's Story
Arham Ali, an adorable one-year-old from Muzaffargarh, had been grappling with the challenges of cyanosis, shortness of breath, and recurring chest pain. Concerned about their child’s deteriorating health, his parents wasted no time and rushed him to the hospital. Following a series of diagnostic tests and evaluations, the doctors delivered a heartbreaking diagnosis: Arham was suffering from Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with severe cyanosis—a congenital heart defect characterized by four distinct abnormalities. The only solution to save Arham’s life was through open-heart surgery for total correction, preceded by angiography.
With the weight of despair heavy upon them, Arham’s family sought a lifeline, and that’s when Transparent Hands stepped in. Recognizing the urgency of Arham’s situation, we extended our support to provide the financial assistance they desperately needed.
He was admitted to the University of Lahore Teaching Hospital in Lahore. There, under the skilled hands of Dr. Jamal Nasir, the much-needed operation to repair his Tetralogy of Fallot and close the ventricular septal defect (VSD) on 12-08-2023 took place. Throughout the procedure, the medical team showed exceptional expertise and care, ensuring Arham’s well-being every step of the way.
Following the surgery, Arham’s recovery progressed remarkably well. After a seven-day stay in the hospital, he was discharged in a stable condition, bringing immeasurable relief to his family. The symptoms that had plagued his life were now being replaced by hope and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.
The Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation and the compassionate donors contributed together to make this surgery possible. Arham’s family expresses its deepest gratitude to all the donors who selflessly contributed to his treatment. Your generosity has not only saved his life but has also given him the chance to grow up healthy and pursue his dreams.
Arham’s journey serves as a powerful reminder that no challenge is big when we come together with hearts full of compassion. Our kind-hearted donors have made a profound difference in the lives of this precious child and his family.
