Jairus, a synagogue leader asked him for healing. He would have been a lay leader in charge of the building and the services going on.
He comes with a hopeless situation, asking Jesus to save.

This lady would have been considered unclean
Could not come to worship services
Social outcast

Lonely and depressed
The account of information about her doctor visits goes to show that the issue was incurable at this time.
