Any ordinary three-year old boy would proudly demonstrate his skipping skills to you. My three-year old son, Asif, only watches other children skipping around and longs to join them. But Asif is not an ordinary child. He is my young fighter battling cancer. I drive a taxi in Peshawar and we are content as long as we get meals three times a day. I could not afford the life-saving cancer treatment for my son and I don’t have words to express my relief to learn that Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre will be providing best cancer care to my son. I look forward to the day when my son will be able to run towards me. I know that I would have been unable to even hope for that day without the well-wishers and supporters of the hospital.
