Letter:  Blood cancer in Pakistan

Blood cancer is affecting the people in every age. Childhood leukemia, Acute Lymphoblast Leukemia (ALL) and blood cancer are known to be the major causes which are increasing the mortality rate of children in Pakistan.

In Pakistan more than 85,000 people die every year among them approximately 70% out of 100% are suffering from blood cancer. Nearly 300 to 350 cases have been registered regularly in the center of Pakistan Children Aid Association (CAA).

The only reason of spreading blood cancer is not provide more awareness about such dangerous diseases and lack of health facilities. Financial support is a huge issue by which children are being untreated and losing their lives.

 In Pakistan mostly the poor people are the victim of death, the reason is only one, they are not be able to pay the high fee of the all things which are important for treating blood cancer.

 I request to the health authorities to provide health facilities which would be affordable for everyone.
