I received an email from a blog reader asking me to post about her friend who is in a dire need of help to save her life. Noor Rahman, a 17-years-old Pakistani girl living with her family in Kuwait, was diagnosed in January 2012 with Leukemia. She underwent chemotherapy sessions, seemed to be getting better, but then she had a relapse in December 2012 and is now admitted to the hospital since 10 January 2013 and needs a bone marrow transplant.
None of her family members were a match for the bone marrow, and in Kuwait and Pakistan they don’t perform bone marrow transplants from non-relative donors. The only hope for Noor is to be treated abroad in Europe or USA with a bone marrow donor which is a very expensive procedure that is also painful and lengthy. The estimated cost of Noor’s treatment is around KD 50,000.
Noor’s family are asking for help. They want to spread the word so that maybe someone kind and generous would extend a helping hand and help Noor. She’s only 17. She should be dreaming about graduation, signing the yearbook, saying good bye to her high school friends, and choosing a college to attend. She should not be suffering from cancer in a hospital bed with a treatment she cannot have because of money restrictions.
If you can help Noor or know someone who can help Noor, please share! You can share the post, instagram it, tweet it, facebook it, spread the word so maybe a big company, bank, or a generous person can help out. If you don’t know anyone, you can always pray for Noor.
Please help Noor. You can check the facebook page Noor’s family set up for her here (link). To view a copy of her medical report you can click here (Page1) (Page2). You can also contact her family to ask for more information or arrange with her parents to visit Noor in the hospital and talk to her or one of her doctors. You can contact her father Mr. Khalil Rahman on 97541718 or 99372164 or her mother Mrs. Shazia Rahman on 99372164 or her friend who emailed me Miss Abeer Sarwar 66152946.
Get well soon Noor. May Allah heal you insha2 Allah.
