Family upset due to cancer treatment
Irfan Ali, a resident of Kabir Nagar in Shahdara, has cancer and was undergoing treatment at Delhi State Cancer Hospital. Irrfan’s brother Akeel said that he had undergone chemo therapy in the hospital for the last time in February. After this, his therapy has not been done. Refuse treatment at the hospital. Just went on May 4 and then asked to come later. If they do not get treatment, then the condition will be worse. Chemo therapy takes place three times a month and three months have passed since no therapy. Chemo therapy provides little relief. We have had to sell property and vehicles for treatment. When he went to a private hospital, he demanded a lot of money there. We do not have so much money left now. Ask for 25-30 thousand of a test.
