“You have Cancer" when these words echoed in my ear, I went numb. I couldn’t think of anything. I wanted to shout, cry and express my displeasure of this unfortunate situation. But then I looked at my mother, who seemed more broken by this news than me. And so, I kept my emotions within me.
This is the story of Minahil, a 17 year old Pakistani cancer survivor who fought against this disease and rewrote her destiny!
Cancer Knows No Age
Around 8,000 children in Pakistan under the age of 18 are diagnosed with cancer every year. That’s 8,000 young lives affected; 8,000 mothers praying they don’t have to bury their child.
Minahil Was Diagnosed With Cancer In 2017
Minahil was heartbroken when she heard about her diagnosis, not just because she didn’t quite understand if she can survive it, but knowing her parent’s financial limitation that they won't be able to afford the treatment.
Minahil felt trapped not being able to share her condition with her friends because of the social taboo associated with cancer being thought as a contagious disease. As her friends learnt about her condition, they began to distance themselves from her thus leaving her isolated from the outside world. She was depressed.
Fortunately, her family was referred to Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN), and that’s when her life changed for the best.
Indus Hospital & Minahil
Minahil is now a 21-year-old cancer survivor who has emerged as a spirited individual. She is studying hard to get her medical degree, actively working towards making a change by advocating for healthcare awareness and working with NGOs to help the youth of the nation.
Minahil’s survival solely depended on access to treatment, which was made possible because of the generosity & support of Indus Hospital & Health Network donors.
Indus Hospital continues it's mission to provide free of cost quality care to the underprivileged & thrives to serve more Pediatric Oncology Patients every year.
The reality of many Pakistanis
21% of the population is below the poverty line. Access to quality healthcare is considered a luxury which middle and lower class families can’t afford. The choice is between survival of the whole family vs. saving life of one.
Could you imagine the helplessness these families experience? Affordable healthcare is a basic human right.
Every child deserves a chance to live life to the fullest, to grow up and experience the joys of life. Cancer strips that away from them. This is a horrible tragedy. Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN), a network of 12 hospitals, has already treated 10,500 children for life threatening blood diseases and cancer for FREE and many more lives are waiting to be saved.
Here at IHHN, we provide quality care, free of cost. IHHN’s vision is to create an excellence-driven, comprehensive, compassionate, free of charge, and replicable healthcare system accessible to all. We do not stand for discrimination. We believe every life should be treated equally, with equal opportunities.
Because we are a free healthcare system, we rely on your donations to help us achieve that vision.
