LAHORE, (Pakistan Point News – 7th Feb, 2017): 21-year old Mahnoor Shabir fought courageously against cancer. She may have lost the war against it but she touched so many hearts with her courage and hopefulness. Mahnoor, a person with not just a radiating face but a radiating soul left the whole web mourning for her. In her final status Mahnoor asked everyone to pray for her but most importantly for her parents, who now has to bear the loss of a youngdaughter and put her to rest.
Won a battle but the war against cancer isn’t over yet. Fortunately or unfortunately, it relapsed just a few days back. I am a 21 years who should be worrying about my quizzes and if I made it above the average, but instead I have to worry about my blood counts being in the normal range.I am 21 years old who should be worrying about my GPA, but instead I worry about the result of my biopsies. I am a 21 years old who should be searching for the best post grad universities abroad, instead I am searching for the best cancer clinics abroad. I am a 21 years old who should be rejoining her university again this week, instead I am getting hospitalised again. I am a 21 years old who should be worrying about a chipped nail, instead I worry about the effects of chemotherapy.
I am a 21 years old who should be worrying about relationships, instead I worry about emotional attachment with almost anyone. I am a 21 years old who should be the one making trips to the hospital for her parents and wheeling them around, instead they are the ones doing it. But none of that upsets me, it makes me only more grateful that I am an extra ordinary 21 years old. I am a 21 years with incredible strength, willpower, resilience and courage to face one of the most deadliest maladies again.
A second attempt may be frustrating but I believe it can be easy too. And it makes me grateful to have the most amazing and supportive parents out there. But I am a 21 years old who is nothing without Allah or the prayers that He answers. So I would request you all to keep me in your prayers as much as you can. No one knows when one of it might get accepted!- Mahnoor Shabir
