The loss of a child is something Celina knows too well. A few years back, Celina gave birth to twin boys Arthur and Shamsher in September 2017 in Dubai. Unfortunately, Shamsher could not survive due to a heart-related ailment.
Asif’s two-year-old daughter Noor was diagnosed with stage-VI cancer in February this year when he was taking part in PSL 2019.
Fatima received medical assistance for two months at Shaukat Khanam hospital and was taken to the US on April 22 for further treatment.
My daughter is fighting the stage IV cancer and we are taking her to US for her treatment. A big shout out to @usembislamabad and @USCGLahore for issuing the visa to us within an hour. Special thanks to Mike, Elizabeth, Tanveer & @TalhaAisham Bhai. Keep my princess in your Duas!
