Hardworking Pakistani Freelancer is Inspiration for Many people, Meeting Deadlines While Undergoing Dialysis
A good example of inspiration for all of us. A Pakistani Freelancer Umair Shafique is a role model for many people who think they can’t do anything and make reasons for not doing tasks on time.
Because If you are willing to do something, then nobody can stop you. And keep this thing in your mind that “Nothing is impossible.”
Fighting a constant battle for life, Umair Shafique has been in and out of hospitals nearly all his life. It all began when he was only 4. Back then, it was the first time he was admitted to a hospital but 20 years along the line, Shafique continues to suffer from his chronic kidney disease.
Shafique was first admitted to the hospital in 2001. Back then, the was a lack of knowledge and research on what caused stones in the kidney. Later in 2007, he had his first major surgery. A 27 mm stone was removed from the left kidney. However, even then nobody knew what caused it.
In 2009 and the following year, he was constantly in and out of the hospital for the treatment known as Lithotripsy. Unfortunately, in 2014 Shafique had a road accident wherein he broke his thigh leg. He stayed in a hospital bed for 3 months. Two years back in 2019, Shafique was again admitted to the hospital for the stones. The doctors suggested him to have open kidney surgery.
It has been one and a half years that Shafique is on dialysis. For 20 years, nobody knew that he had faulty liver which caused this. Dialysis is now required three times a week to keep him alive.
The doctors have now advised him to go for a liver and kidney combined transplant otherwise it may turn into life-ending cancer. But still, he is motivated toward his commitments.
However, Shafique has always been motivated. He even completed his degree in information technology. In fact, he has been doing freelancing since 2016 and is working excitedly despite facing a huge health challenge. Moreover, his workspace is not his home but the hospital where he spent four hours, three times a week.
