Patient Stories

Nauman

“Life with Thalassemia is awful, especially when 3 kids are sufferers of Thalassemia. Nauman is my grandson and his remaining brothers are the victim of this disease, too. I think it’s useless to tell people, when they ask how is life with Thalassemia? They think we are fabricating a story. Nobody can empathize our pain. It is me and Nauman parents who can understand this agony”.
Nauman is stubborn and annoying. He goes to school and a student of grade IV. His father is a labor and he is the only bread-earner in his family. His income is dependent on daily wages. Simultaneously, rearing three thalassemic children with trivial earning is tough.
Nauman’s grandmother, Ms. Shahjehaan admires AMTF. “I am glad that my grandson is under care of excellent doctors. I have no complaints regarding this foundation. Day care has a very good ambience. From the food to medical facilities; everything is served on time. Doctors are loyal and honest.
“I just pray that Allah protect this country from Thalassemia (Aameen)…”

Wali-Daad

Wali-Daad was four months baby, when he was diagnosed Thalassemia. He is 12 years old, active and unlike other thalassemic children he is extrovert and fun-loving. His mother Nargis told” Thalassemia is a deadly disease. With the passage of time, we have accepted that our son will not be cured. By the grace of Allah, we are not facing any hardships. We have bigheartedly accept our son’s disease, and that is why we have no complaints from life. It is Allah’s will and we are happy”.
Mrs. Nargis further unfolded “I have no issues for this foundation. I think AMTF is doing its best for Thalassemic patients. It has always support us and is perfect in all sense”.
“I just request that Medical institutes must spread awareness for Thalassemia (on large scale) as prevention is better than cure. I also try my best to spread awareness amongst my family members, but they don’t pay heed to my words. They think Thalassemia as an ordinary blood disease…

Huma

15 years old Hurma was diagnosed Thalassemia Major, when she was 6 months old.” I have 8 eight children and Hurma is the only victim of this disease. Thalassemia is a bad disease. My eldest daughter got married few months back. Before that I advice my son-in-law and his family for screening test; fortunately, they were agreed. And I request to the readers to get your families screened to prevent your generations from Thalassemia”.
Hurma is student of grade VI. She is not stubborn and demanding, rather very sensitive and warm hearted. “I just pay for her health and long-life”.
The facilities and services are incomparable at AMTF. I haven’t seen any foundation that is serving profound services for free of cost. Thank –you AMTF for their support and care…
