Zareena Bibi’s successful TOF repair

Zareena Bibi's Story

A six-year-old Zareena Bibi, a brave little girl from Bhakkar, had been struggling with shortness of breath and cyanosis since the day she was born. Her parents, concerned about her health, sought medical help when she turned one. It was then that they received the heartbreaking news that Zareena had a congenital heart condition known as Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF).

Determined to find a solution for their precious daughter, Zareena’s parents took her to a local hospital, where doctors confirmed the diagnosis. They were advised that an angiography followed by open-heart surgery for total correction was the best course of action. However, the cost of the surgery was beyond their means, and they felt helpless and unsure of how to proceed.

In their moment of despair, they reached out to Transparent Hands, an organization dedicated to providing medical assistance to those in need. Placing their hopes in the organization, Zareena’s family registered her case, hoping for a miracle.

The heartfelt plea did not go unheard. Transparent Hands, along with the generous support of donors, rallied together to make Zareena’s dream of a healthy life a reality.  With the combined efforts of Transparent Hands, the donors, and the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation, Zareena’s case was swiftly processed. She was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital in Lahore, where the skilled cardiac surgeon, Dr. Asim Khan, performed the necessary procedure of median sternotomy and total correction on 2nd November 2023.

Thanks to the expertise of Dr. Khan and the dedicated medical team, Zareena’s surgery was a success. The operation lasted several hours, and Zareena showed remarkable resilience throughout the process. She stayed in the hospital for eight days, receiving the necessary post-operative care and support. Zareena’s parents were overwhelmed with gratitude.
