The donation campaign was launched by Moinullah Baig, Farhad Baig and Sajid Karim, among others, after Sher Ahmad, a resident of Hunza, posted a video on social media seeking help to pay for the cost of his treatment.
This request is to help for Mr Sher Ahmed Khan, hailing from Aliabad, Hunza.After being treated with high-dose chemotherapy for a year for Multiple Myeloma (Bone Marrow Cancer), the disease had shown symptoms of remission. However, recently it has relapsed even though he has maintained a strict diet and simple lifestyle. Currently, he is undergoing chemotherapy sessions at Aga Khan Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan for the last year. The treatment plan suggests a minimum of 16 weeks of Chemo and on further evaluation requires additional 4-8 doses on a weekly basis based on his condition. He is in dire need of a bone marrow transplant.
