Shumaila Abid’s Second Chance At Life

Shumaila Abid's Story

Shumaila Abid, an 18-year-old resident of Layyah, had been experiencing shortness of breath, rapid breathing, fatigue, poor growth, and struggling with weight gain since birth. After a comprehensive evaluation, doctors diagnosed Shumaila with a ventricular septal defect (VSD), a condition that required urgent medical attention. The recommended course of treatment was a VSD closure surgery, which would give Shumaila a chance at a healthier and more fulfilling life.

Despite the seriousness of her condition, Shumaila remained hopeful, holding onto the belief that there were compassionate individuals out there who could help her in her time of need.

It was then that Transparent Hands, stepped in to support Shumaila. With the help of generous donors, she was admitted to the prestigious University of Lahore Teaching Hospital, where a team of skilled medical professionals, led by Dr. Salman, successfully performed the VSD closure surgery on February 29, 2024. The surgery was a resounding success, and Shumaila’s heart began to heal, bringing her closer to a healthier future.

The impact of this life-saving surgery was immeasurable, and it was made possible through the collective efforts of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation and the compassionate donors who selflessly extended their support. Shumaila and her family were grateful for these extraordinary individuals who, without hesitation, came forward to make a difference in her life.

The surgery saved Shumaila’s life and instilled hope and happiness in her entire family. The love and support she received during this challenging period will forever be etched in their hearts. Today, Shumaila can lead a healthier and more fulfilling life, free from the burdens she once carried. Shumaila’s success story inspires others, reminding us that we can make a profound difference in the lives of those in need with compassion and unwavering support. Shumaila will now be able to pursue her studies, household chores, and daily activities without the constant worry and hindrance caused by her heart condition.
