Iman Ali is a renowned Pakistani model turned actress who has several accolades under her belt. The Mah-e-Mir star came into the limelight, earlier this year when she tied the knot with Babar Bhatti, the grandson of Major Aziz Bhatti. This time, however, she has become a public interest for a starkly different reason.
Iman Ali opens up about her struggle with Multiple Sclerosis
The model earlier today posted on her Instagram where she opened up about suffering from Multiple Sclerosis on World Multiple Sclerosis Day. She further revealed how it is a part of her life now and her lifestyle has completely changed. The actress also shared a blurred selfie, also known as “blurfie” to reciprocate the blurred vision that accompanies the disease.
For those of you who don’t know, MS is a disease in which the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. If left untreated, the disease can be deadly.
Signs and Symptoms: The symptoms of this disease vary from person to person, depending on the location of affected nerve fibers. The common symptoms are dizziness, electric shock sensations with certain neck movements. Partial or complete loss of vision, usually in one eye at a time.
It was back in 2009 when the model disclosed about her disease. Since then, Iman Ali has sought various medical help to deal with this.
Celebrities take part in “Let’s Beat MS”
Some celebrities such as Minal Khan, Aiman Khan, Azekah Daniel, etc. are also taking part in this campaign called “Let’s Beat MS” – an initiative taken by a Pakistani organization that aims to raise awareness about this particular disease in Pakistan and also helps people with MS.
We are proud of the brave lady – that’d be our very own Iman Ali – who is strong enough to reveal this to the whole world and wish and pray that she gets well.
