Emraan Hashmi’s son Ayaan, who was diagnosed with cancer recently, was flown to Canada for treatment as that country has the best childcare in the world. The 4 year old was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in his kidney but now, he is responding well to the treatment.
“What not many of us are aware of is that when it comes to children, 90 per cent of cancer is curable. The treatment is regularised and Ayaan who is being given the mildest two-drug chemotherapy is doing well,” says Mahesh Bhatt, Emraan’s uncle.
“After the anguish we faced, we have reason to believe that the dark night is behind us and Ayaan will be back with us in four months if not before,” said Bhatt and added that while Emraan will return to India to fulfil his professional commitments, his wife Parveen will stay back in Canada, taking care of their son.
“The way the film fraternity came forward to stand by Emraan is very encouraging. Akshay Kumar, who has a Canadian citizenship, called to offer his help. Our common friend, Ajay Virmani, who lives there, has also told us to call for anything we need. Strangers on the street stop me to say that they are offering prayers for Ayaan. At a time when we hear only about bad things happening to people, it’s so heartening to see this ocean of goodness,” says an emotional Bhatt.
We wish Ayaan a speedy recovery…
