Muhammad Umair 's Story
Umair, a four-year-old resident of Bahawalnagar, had been experiencing symptoms of cyanosis, dyspnea, and recurring episodes of chest pain. Concerned about his deteriorating health, his parents took him to a local hospital. Following a series of diagnostic tests, a cardiologist delivered a complex diagnosis: Umair was found to have multiple heart defects, including Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction (RVOTO). The cardiac surgeon advised him to undergo open-heart surgery to address the VSD closure and RVOTO resection.
Regrettably, Umair’s family faced a significant financial challenge as the cost of the required surgery exceeded their means. However, determined to find a solution and provide their beloved son with the necessary surgery, his family contacted Transparent Hands for financial support.
Umair was admitted to the University of Lahore Teaching Hospital, where he underwent surgery on 25-07-2023 by Dr. Faiz Rasool. Following a comprehensive three-day post-operative period, Umair’s condition stabilized, and he was discharged from the hospital.
The success of Umair’s surgery can be attributed to the skill and dedication demonstrated by Dr. Faiz Rasool and the medical team at the hospital. Their dedicated commitment to delivering high-quality healthcare to young patients like Umair was evident throughout the entire process.
Umair’s family expresses deep gratitude for the assistance they received during this challenging period. The support provided by compassionate individuals and the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation underscores the importance of ensuring that every child has access to life-saving medical procedures.
With the surgery behind him, Umair can now embrace a brighter future. The closure of his VSD and the resection of the RVOTO have alleviated his symptoms and granted him the opportunity to lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. The resilience and determination exhibited by Umair and his family serve as an inspiration to others who may be facing similar challenges.
