“I was very worried a few months back when my daughter used to cry all day long
and she couldn’t walk at all. Now I am worried because she runs everywhere and
makes me chase her. But I like her playing, running and jumping all over the place.”
says Muhammad Qasim, father of Rabia Qasim who is getting treated for Blood
Cancer at Children Cancer. Rabia is a darling of the day care staff too at CCH, even
though she doesn’t understand Urdu but she gets friends with everyone. With a
beautiful smile she has, she doesn’t let you move your attention elsewhere. Rabia
was brought to Children Cancer Hospital 6 months back when she was diagnosed
with blood cancer. She’s based in Quetta where her father is a daily wage labor. He
struggles hard to make ends meet for a family which includes 7 siblings of Rabia. He
says there are times when they didn’t have any food for a day. So, when he got to
know that his daughter has cancer, he had obvious reasons to get worried. But as
he stated, the moment he arrived at Children Cancer Hospital, all those worries
faded away gradually. He says that the Doctors and Staff at CCH give them the love
and respect they never imagined of. “With the treatment going smoothly, Rabia
laughs and plays all day. And I have started smiling too.”
