“I always wanted to be a father – I knew that. And it was scary when I was diagnosed with cancer. Worrying about whether I would be able to have children was definitely a thought that came to me immediately”.
Alim was first diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2001, followed by two further diagnoses in the next 3 years.
As part of his treatment, Alim took a drug called Cisplatin. Cancer Research UK played a vital role in developing this drug, which is now a go-to drug for testicular cancer, and helps almost all men (98%) survive the disease for at least 10 years..
Today, thanks to regular donations like yours, Alim is a father of two who loves spending time with his family.
“I have so much fun with my kids. There’s so much laughter. They’re my kids but they’re my friends too – it is the best thing to have this relationship with them as they grow up, sharing times and having experiences together.”
