I talked with Dr. Iftekhar 2 days ago on phone. To my surprise, the line went through on the first try.
Dr.Iftekhar told me that Asma is still being treated by the Doctors in Sylhet and she is responding well to chemotherapy.
I asked him why she is not being moved to Dhaka. Apparently, Asma's parents are locals of Sylhet and not too eager to move her to Dhaka for fear of expense.
Dr. Iftekhar told me he will inform her parents of our campaign and try to persuade them to move her to Dhaka.
