The family and their story were featured on this television show https://youtu.be/BmT4Hqnej3I
In Shahid Zubairs own words: "I am a desperate father who lives in Lahore, Pakistan with my wife, Saher and three children––Nida, 17, Ahmad, 15 and Eman, 10. All three of my children are in wheelchair and suffer from a rare and progressive muscle-wasting genetic disorder called Muscular Dystrophy that has paralyzed them from waist down. I am in urgent need of funds to take my children to UCLA for a much needed scoliosis surgery for Nida and treatment for all three. All three children also suffer from ongoing pulmonary, respiratory and GI issues. Nida has also developed scoliosis of spine and needs corrective surgery. I lost my job last year and can’t find another because of thechildren’s ongoing needs that require my physical presence. There is no protocol of treatment or proper management of MD in Pakistan.My children recently got accepted by the School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles for gene therapy/stem cell treatment and for Nida’s surgery. It is a once in a lifetime chance for my children and we do not have the means to make this much needed journey and fulfill the financial obligations that come with it. I am hoping to take my children for this life changing journey to U.S. on October 13 and needs some help to cover the cost of treatment, travel, and logistics"
