Dubai: Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council, has announced that he will bear the treatment cost of an Emirati who was diagnosed with cancer. 

Shaikh Hamdan’s generous move came a few hours after the Khalifa Mohamed Rashid Da’fous Al Muhairi, posted a video on Instagram, saying that his treatment expenses are expected to be Dh3 million. The Emirati was surprised by Shaikh Hamdan’s quick response.

The young Emirati has been receiving treatment in the US and was reportedly told that he only had 3 years to live by doctors. He had recently undergone a lung surgery before posting that his chemo hadn't worked.
