My life has changed in the last year due to a cancer "given" by Kabul air pollution. I had to leave my beloved Afghanistan but I will soon be back. Many say I'm crazy to continue my life in one of the poorest and most dangerous countries in the world, and that in a situation like mine, going back to Afghanistan would be like committing suicide. But it's not exactly like that.
Cancer has made me a person with disabilities, and I have to undergo cancer follow-up for the next 5 years - My mission [our Mssion] will therefore be to raise awareness about the absolute need to create Cancer Centers in Afghanistan where every Afghan can be diagnosed, treated, and helped. Especially for those who like me, despite having won a first battle against this evil, have to adapt to a new way of life.
IN AFGHANISTAN, tens of thousands of PEOPLE DIE FROM CANCER each year!
And few people in the World know about this.
I'll be there in Afghanistan to make it clear to the whole world what cancer patients and those at risk of cancer need.

I have had surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, but radiotherapy is really the most terrible thing. You feel burned and you have pain even a year after radiation.

3📍 ...this as one of their priorities. And it is necessary to develop a collaboration in this sense with specialized centers within the European Union.— IvoTONIUT (@IvoTONIUT) August 16, 2019
I will soon start working on this.
I would have died of cancer in...
4/4📍...Afghanistan if I hadn't had the chance to leave the country to undergo urgent surgery in Italy. Why did I get this chance, and the Afghans cannot?— IvoTONIUT (@IvoTONIUT) August 16, 2019
Just because I have a EU passport?
It is not fair and it is uncivilized.
We are all human beings with equal right to live!
