Testimonials

This is a selection of recognition and acknowledgement from people all over the world, who have supported me, followed my story, felt my pain celebrated in my joys, felt inspired by my struggle, or simply helped me with a few kind words.

‘Najma Yasmin is truly inspiring with an engaging spirit. She brings knowledge and sense to a debate, campaigns for justice and let’s not forget the bags of style! She beautifully and selflessly, while enduring a long, painful and ruthless battle with leukaemia, still has the strength and faith to campaign to highlight other people’s struggles. By sharing her own battle with cancer and her political knowledge, my eyes have been opened wider, to unfamiliar but widespread global struggles; political corruption, conflict, suffering and oppression! Her motivational attitude makes me want to do the same… strive and speak up for what is right!’
Claire Brett, Manchester UK

‘Ny Gani is somebody who has had a remarkably rocky journey. Her story is unlike many I have read before, as it gives an insight into her struggle with small issues and the big life questions in the isolation of a immuno-protected clean room inside a busy London Hospital. Her story made me laugh in places and cry in places I cannot wait to read the rest.’
Jennifer Teal, Toronto Canada

‘My father died of Leukaemia ten years ago, he struggled with his diagnosis and withdrew from life. I followed Ny Gani on FaceBook, and have been moved by her daily struggles and health updates, I have read her many posts and notes and comments and found her inspirational, I cannot wait to read her book.’

‘This post is inspired by two lovely women who are going through an extraordinary hardship in their lives actually. Both are very sick but have completely different ways of dealing with it. I am involved in both as they are updating daily.

The first woman, is ‘Ny’ is suffering from Acute Pro Myeloid Leukaemia since over 5 years, had 47 Bone Marrow Aspirate & Trephine procedures a vast number of chemotherapies and several other treatments and is statistically the only one suffering this disease who survived so many relapses in a period of 5 years.

The attitude of this beautiful, young woman towards her disease and life in general is enviable as she is the most courageous and enthusiastic person I have ever seen. She is very involved in political, charitable and spiritual work.

Her main concern is to spread the word about Desi Donors, who has been set up to promote and raise awareness for Bone Marrow, Blood and Organ Donors, in Asian and Ethnic communities. Desi Donors launched July 09 and is proactively helping Asian patients find the right match so they can help live. However there are not enough Asians & Ethnic Minorities on the registers so matches are not being found. There are 411,000 people on the Anthony Nolan Register, however only 4% of those are just Asian, making it almost impossible for an Asian patient to find a suitable match.
So Ny is generally positive, having faith in her Lord, knowing that the possibility is absolutely possible to die of her disease and is not despairing. She looks at her condition as a test from Allah, and is expecting reward for her suffering (Insha’Allah). Her final attitude is to live and die with God. She is a inspiration.’

‘When I first heard your story I was devastated thinking you are so young you should be enjoying the prime of your life and not be suffering in this way, but now that I have followed you, your story is a tale of triumph over tragedy with a touch of lip-gloss, I love you very much and pray for you always’

‘I named you Najma (arabic = star), not knowing that your life would contain so much pain and struggle, never guessing my child would suffer most of her adult life with a horrible rare Leukaemia, but I chose Najma, because i knew that you were a star whose light will shine bright forever’
