Musa Warsi

musa-warsi“Our Musa is a bright and resilient boy who loves playing with his collection of toy cars. His resilience was truly tested when he was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma at the age of four. The thought that Musa may not get the chance to celebrate his fifth birthday was treacherous”.

Musa was just four years old when we noticed a gradual decline in his health. He would often complain of abdominal pain and at times nausea as well. One day the pain became unbearable and we rushed him to a local hospital where the doctor diagnosed him with acute appendicitis. He was operated on immediately but after a few weeks, his condition still did not improve. The doctor suspected that Musa’s intestines were entangled so he underwent another operation.

It was then that the doctor broke the devastating news that Musa was suffering from a cancer called Burkitt’s Lymphoma. He said that it was at a stage where there were little chances of survival. The thought that Musa may not get the chance to celebrate his fifth birthday was treacherous. But we had to do something. It was then that a doctor advised us to take him to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital. We immediately brought him to the Hospital where he was inducted for treatment. The experienced and qualified consultants were hopeful that Musa’s could be treated even at this advanced stage. Hope was all we needed at that point and our days began to grow brighter. The eighteen month treatment was intensive however Musa bravely pulled through each phase of the treatment. We were satisfied to know that our beloved son was in safe hands. He was being given the best treatment available in the world at that point in time and that too free of cost.

Musa is now ten years old and growing stronger with each passing day. He has rejoined school with the motivation to become a doctor and help save the lives of children just like himself.
