“Hi, my name is Georgina. I am a teacher living in Kuwait. I am originally from the UK and have lived in Kuwait for just over 5 years. I am passionate about many things in life and foremost- my friends and family.
I was driving to work one morning in January of this year, listening to some music that I listened to when I was at university and I suddenly felt a buzz and happy feeling. Having recently been told that a family member had been given the ‘all clear’ after treatment for cancer, I felt the sudden urge to want to do something ‘good’ for a society and support a cancer charity.
I tried in vain over the next few months to arrange a big event in Kuwait, inviting DJ’s from the UK and Dubai to participate in a fundraising event. I had support from many wonderful people but as venues are few and far between here, it was a fruitless exercise.
We received this touching email, and we would like to share it with all our readers. If there is any way you can help, kindly contact them via their FB page or email. Please feel free to re-post/share the following:
“Noor Rahman, a 17-year-old Pakistani girl living with her family in Kuwait, was diagnosed in January 2012 with Leukemia. She underwent chemotherapy sessions, seemed to be getting better, but then she had a relapse in December 2012 and is now admitted to the hospital since 10 January 2013 and needs a bone marrow transplant.
None of her family members were a match for the bone marrow, and in Kuwait and Pakistan they don’t perform bone marrow transplants from non-relative donors. The only hope for Noor is to be treated abroad in Europe or USA with a bone marrow donor which is a very expensive procedure that is also painful and lengthy. The estimated cost of Noor’s treatment is around KD 50,000.
Noor’s family is asking for help. They want to spread the word so that maybe someone kind and generous would extend a helping hand and help Noor. If you can help Noor or know someone who can help Noor, please share this information. A Facebook page has also been created for this cause and you can view it HERE. If anyone is willing to help in any way, or if someone can help in finding her a sponsor, kindly contact them via FB or at HelpNoor.firstname.lastname@example.org.”
