Talha Khan 's Story
One-year-old Talha, a resident of Bhakkar, had been suffering from dyspnea, cyanosis, and episodes of fever and chest pain. He was unable to gain weight. His parents noticed these symptoms when he was just a month old. They took him to the local hospital. After running some diagnostic tests, the cardiologist diagnosed him with transposition of the great arteries (TGA), ventricular septal defect (VSD), atrial septal defect (ASD), and intact ventricular septum (IVS). The cardiologist advised him to undergo a median sternotomy and atrial switch-sending operation. Unfortunately, his father could not afford the cost of the surgery. He contacted Transparent Hands for financial help.
He was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, where his operation was successfully performed by Dr. Asim on 23-06-2023. After a stay of five days in the hospital, he was finally allowed to go home. With the help of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation and other kind donors, this surgery was made possible. The moment his parents witnessed their beloved son’s remarkable recovery, their hearts were filled with gratitude.
After the surgery, not only was his life saved, but a whole new world of possibilities opened up before him. With his health restored, he can now enjoy a carefree childhood, free from the limitations he once faced. A bright future awaits, filled with countless opportunities to explore, learn, and follow his dreams.
None of this would have been possible without the kindness and generosity of donors like you. Your contributions have had a profound impact, not just on Talha but on his entire family. The weight lifted off his parents’ shoulders, knowing their son now has a chance at a healthy and prosperous future, is beyond measure. We are incredibly grateful to each and every donor who made this life-saving surgery a reality. Donate online to help deserving children like Talha.
