Emraan Hashmi’s son declared cancer free


Emraan Hashmi’s son Ayaan Hashmi has been declared cancer-free five years after his diagnosis, confirms Emraan himself in a post on Twitter.

The Bollywood actor shared pictures of Ayaan and himself on his Twitter account and said, “Today, five years after his diagnosis Ayaan has been declared cancer free. It has been quite a journey. Thank you for all your prayers and wishes. Love and prayers for all the cancer fighters out there, hope and belief go a long way. You can WIN this battle !!!

Born in February 2010, Ayaan, the first child of Emraan and wife Parveen Shahani, was diagnosed with first stage cancer at the age of four in early 2014.

Emraan, who has co-written the book “The Kiss of Life. How A Superhero & My Son Defeated Cancer” with author Bilal Siddiqi said, “The idea of writing a book never came to his mind until veteran journalist Hussain Zaidi asked him to do it.”

The book traces the physical pain of the child, then three years and 10 months old, and the emotional trauma of his parents, from the diagnosis through the treatment to cancer-free years.
