Hyderabad: Farheen has aplastic anaemia, a condition in which the body stops producing enough new blood cells. She has been undergoing blood transfusions every week for six months now, but they’re not enough. Farheen needs a bone marrow transplant to survive. Fortunately her younger brother Afroz is a suitable match, but her family is penniless.
Even before her diagnosis, Farheen was a quiet girl, but she was happy. She loves going to college and often dreamed of a future where she would have a stable job. She and her five siblings are extremely close, and she considered her father her strongest support. Now, there’s only silence when their family is together. Shaheen often thinks about the good days, but it all seems like a distant memory now.
After spending all the money that Nisar and Shaheen had saved over the past 10 years on Farheen’s treatment so far, Shaheen now has nothing to afford her life-saving bone marrow transplant. She is still grieving her husband’s death, but she has only one thing on her mind – to save her daughter from this disease. However, Farheen's monthly medical bills exceed Rs. 20,000, and with no income, Shaheen is struggling - 15 lakhs for the bone marrow transplant is an imaginable amount for her. Farheen’s condition can turn fatal without treatment, and she’s running out of time. She needs the bone marrow transplant at the earliest.
After Farheen was admitted to the hospital due to her blood disease, I found out that my husband had died in a road accident. He had been missing for a few days, and we had spent all our time looking for him everywhere. Even as she was being admitted to the hospital, I kept trying to call him, but his phone was switched off. Soon we found out that someone had found his body. I was shattered. But more than myself, I worried about how I’m going to tell Farheen. Even in severe pain she used to say, “Don’t worry about me, please let’s find abbu." She's already fighting a severe disease, and now she has to deal with the loss of her father.” – Shaheen, 19-year-old Farheen’s mother.
