A mother of two children needs urgent treatment. 35-year-old Gülen Mustafova from Ruse has to undergo heart surgery in Turkey while waiting for a heart transplant.
Until two years ago, Gülen’s life was completely normal. She goes to the doctor for an ailment, and the results turn her world upside down.
“There it was established that I have an interseptal defect, which was discovered at a very early age, but it remained hidden for me for many years. They decided on an emergency heart operation,” Gülen said.
Despite the operation, the implanted pacemaker and several other procedures, Gülen’s condition worsened.
“While I was in the hospital once again, I don’t know for whom, they told me that I was in for a heart transplant. And they put me on the waiting list,” she said.
An innovative procedure in Turkey gives her a chance for a normal life. However, the sum of 65,000 euros is too much for the family, Gülen’s children are 8 and 11 years old.
“That’s why I fought so much, and the fight was not easy at all, and I hope that I will have this chance to raise them”, she added.
“I see what kind of hell she is going through. I am a witness to all this, and therefore I am really asking people with good hearts to support my child, who needs a lot of financial and prayer support,” said Gülen’s mother Emel Islam.
Gülen does not lose hope and believes in goodness and empathy.
