The one who meets the needs of his brother, Allah will meet his needs. Whoever relieves a Muslim of distress, Allah will relieve him of distress on the Day of Resurrection.”Narrated by al-Bukhaari (2442) and Muslim (2580).
——————-Appeal by Cancer Patient wife Sultana Shirin Shazi in Ottawa————–
I am Sultana Shirin Shazi. My husband’s name is Abdul Mannan Mohammad.
He is two times cancer survivor. He was doing well until the end of last year.He was diagnosed the third cancer on November 12’2019. After that, our life has shaken again.
I have summarized some of the key points from his medical history between 2003 (first cancer diagnosis) and until now.
- October 2003: Surgery is performed to remove tumors in the colon. Chemotherapy takes place for 6 months.
- April 2009: Surgery is performed to remove polyps in the colon; during surgery, a tumor is found in the stomach and then removed along with 40% of the stomach. Chemotherapy and radiation take place for 6 months.
- August 2014: Patient is declared cancer-free based on MRI and CT scan results.
- December 16, 2019: Appointment with oncologist. Oncologist suggests starting chemotherapy as soon as possible, but also points out that immunotherapy (Nivolumab and Ipilimumab) is the ideal form of treatment because patient has MSI-high colon cancer.
However, although immunotherapy is approved by government, it not funded by OHIP. We are looking for 120 thousand dollars for 6 months treatment.
I want to save my husband’s life. We will see the oncologist on January 21. We will request him to start the immunotherapy drugs (Nivolumab and Ipilimumab). We will start the treatment but we want you to stay beside us in this battle.
I want to be next to him during the treatment. The expenses are too high to continue myself alone. I hope that we all could make it possible. I am looking forward for your kind help.
