But it was only careful living and proper medication that he kept the dialysis on hold. Later on Major Anwar was diagnosed with HTN,CVA and heart problem but he never made them his weakness. He believes that even in the worse scenario, survival is possible. He successfully completed his twenty four year of service.

In March 2010, he had his first dialysis. This is his second year coming to PKPA. He finds this dialysis center a blessing.

“It is only because of my caring and educated wife Mrs Rehana Anwar ,that I kept gaining strength. Allah Almighty has been extra kind to us. He guided us and led us to this dialysis center, because He loves us and wanted the best for us. My eldest sister Nighat was also a big support and of course my mother’s prayers always saved me from worse conditions”, says the soldier.
