Sina is a very kind, caring, honest and generous person with a very positive character. His terrible condition is now getting worse and has difficulties with breathing. The level of treatment and care for him in hospitals has been poor and due to country's political crisis and sanctions which has affected the quality of his treatment and chemotherapy very seriously. He doesn't have any government funded treatment and care, although the standard is very low. private sector is more or less the same and extremely expensive. His family are in absolute despair and torture not only emotionally but also financially.
