Eman Fatima 's Story
Eman Fatima, a sweet two-and-a-half-year-old girl from Gujranwala, had been bravely battling a congenital heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) since birth. Her struggle with shortness of breath, cyanosis, and difficulty gaining weight had been a constant source of worry for her parents.
However, it wasn’t until she turned one that her parents learned about her condition. Determined to save their precious daughter’s life, they rushed her to a local hospital, where a cardiologist confirmed the diagnosis and recommended Open-Heart Surgery for total correction, following an angiography. . In their darkest hour, they reached out to Transparent Hands. Hope flickered back into their lives when Eman was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, where the skilled hands of Dr. Asim Khan operated on 18-07-2023.
After a tense ten-day stay at the hospital, Eman was finally discharged, her tiny heart now beating stronger than ever. The success of the surgery brought immeasurable relief and joy to her family, who had feared the worst. However, the journey to complete recovery was not yet over. Eman was scheduled for a follow-up visit to have her stitches removed after one week. The magnitude of the blessing bestowed upon Eman and her family cannot be overstated.
The Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation, along with other compassionate donors, played a pivotal role in making this life-saving surgery possible. Their kindness and generosity have not only saved a precious life but also opened a world of possibilities for Eman. To all the donors who selflessly contributed to Eman’s cause, we extend our deepest gratitude.
