Wijdane is a 26-year old married woman and a mother of a 4-year old little boy.
Right after giving birth to her only child, she had been suffering from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: a chronic scarring lung lung scarring disease characterized by a progressive and irreversible decline in lung functions.
This devastating and fatal disease leads to respiratory failure and due to lack of oxygen. Wijdane has been hospitalized multiple times at a cost neither her, nor her family can afford.
Because of her critical condition, she has been administered oxygen therapy to facilitate her breathing. Thanks to a few donations, she was able to acquire an oxygen concentrator that she's currently using at home. This, however, is only a short-term solution. Her doctors do insist on the fact that an urgent lung transplant is the ONLY viable solution which can prolong her life expectancy. Unfortunately, this surgery cannot be performed in Morocco as it is extremely delicate and takes several hours. Most importantly, a lung transplant surgery is a very expensive procedure and Wijdane and her family cannot bear its cost. Still, her little boy and her are hopeful that people will eventually help her during this time of struggle and she'll get to witness him growing right in front of her.
