Rahim Hasham was diagnosed with an acute form of Leukemia on April 7th, 2009. Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is the overcrowding and overproduction of the white blood cells in the bone marrow. Part of his treatment may require a stem cell transplant and no one in his family is a match. Rahim, who is only 34 years old and married to Laila since 2006, lives in Calgary where he works with his father Nazir in the family business.
South Asians 4 Life: The Appeal for Stem Cell and Marrow Donors is working with Rahim’s family to increase awareness in the Ismaili community. We are in the midst of planning swabbing events with his brother Aamer for easy registration in Calgary and Toronto.
