He likes Quran reciting and wishes to become a doctor
Our hero Mahmoud is 9 years old. He lives in Albehaira Governorate. He got leukemia and was admitted to the Hospital 5 years ago. He completed his treatment and started the follow up phase, but he relapsed in June 2022. Dr. Hesham Monib, his treating consultant, decided on a bone marrow transplantation for him. Currently, he is receiving chemotherapy doses and getting ready for the bone marrow transplantation where his 10 month old brother will be the donor.
Mahmoud’s mother shared with us: “the first time my son was admitted to the Hospital, he was very ill and unable to walk because of pain. Thanks be to God and the care of 57357’s professionals, he got better. When he finished his treatment doses and the doctor told us he will be in follow up, I was so relieved. When the disease struck again, I thanked God for having a place like 57357 to resort to . Thanks be to God, his 10 month old brother was 100% compatible with him ”.
Mahmoud is a quiet and bighearted boy. Though he is not the oldest of his siblings, he likes to buy his older brothers gifts and sweets from his allowance. When he meets a poor person while walking in the street, he gives him all the money he has. At the Hospital, he always donates his allowance saying, I should help the Hospital so that God would grant me and my counterparts healing.
Chatting with Mahmoud, he shared: “the thing I love most is reciting Quran and praying. I wait for the Month of Ramadan to play with lanterns with my brothers at home and spend good times. This year I’ll spend Ramadan in the Hospital because of the operation. I am praying for healing for myself and my counterparts in 57357. I want to become a doctor, to open a clinic, and to donate from my income to 57357 to enable many children to be cured. Pray for me to win by second battle against cancer ”.
May God grant healing to Mahmoud and to all 57357’s children. Your support for Mahmoud, and many children like him, waiting for bone marrow transplantation, will grant them a new hope in recovery. The recovery rate in 57357 is currently 71.1%, with your support more children will defeat cancer.
