Muhammad Rayyan's Story
Two-year-old Rayyan, a resident of Rawalpindi, had suffered from shortness of breath, cyanosis, and repeated episodes of chest infections since birth. His parents learned about his condition at the age of one, when he suddenly fainted. They took him to a local hospital. After the diagnostic tests and evaluation, the doctor diagnosed him with complex congenital heart conditions involving Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and Major Aortopulmonary Collateral Arteries (MAPCA). The cardiac surgeon advised him to undergo open-heart surgery for total correction.
However, Rayyan’s family faced financial constraints, making the cost of the necessary angiography and subsequent surgery an overwhelming burden. In their desperate search for help, they turned to Transparent Hands, seeking financial support and hope for their beloved child.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Transparent Hands stepped in to provide much-needed financial assistance. Rayyan underwent an angiography at Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, by Dr. Asim on 12-04-2023. This was a medical procedure that allowed doctors to gain vital insights into the complexity of his heart condition. The results revealed the presence of TOF along with major aortopulmonary collateral arteries, providing a comprehensive understanding of the challenges he faced. He was discharged from the hospital after two days.
Armed with this vital information, the medical team decided to opt for a medical treatment plan instead of immediately proceeding with major surgery. The significant results from the angiography allowed them to tailor a more suitable and less invasive approach to address Rayyan’s condition effectively.
In the midst of the darkness of their struggles, the medical procedure was a ray of light for his family to cling to as hope. Rayyan was able to receive the necessary medical care thanks to the assistance of Transparent Hands, and they also gave him hope for the future. They are thankful to the donors who provided the necessary medical care for the child. Many children like Rayyan looking for your online donations.
