Mahira Khan has been actively doing her part in creating awareness and raising funds for Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH). Fulfilling her responsibility as the brand ambassador, earlier this year the actress was also in Dubai to raise funds for SKMCH.
She once again stands in support of the cause and heads to the United States — San Francisco and Los Angeles — to to appeal for funds at an event on October 27 and October 28 respectively.
Mahira will be attending a fundraising gala dinner that aims to generate capital for Pakistan’s third Shaukat Khanum Hospital that is being built in Karachi.
“Coming to my SF and LA for @SKMCH! Hoping to see all of you there,” she announced on Twitter.
She was previously in the news for sharing knowledge regarding breast cancer. As part of the campaign, Mahira took to Twitter and played a quiz about breast cancer knowledge, where she was trolled for expressing her shock on how she expected to know all about the disease. Taking that as another opportunity Mahira chose to remain calm and gave the troll a perfect reply.
“It’s because of people like you women don’t even bother saying the word ‘breast’ let alone go for an examination. Why don’t you take the quiz, to be more aware for the women in your family and yourself (men can also get breast cancer),” she replied.
She has a strong and continued connection with SKMCH’s awareness campaigns and fundraisers.
