They had special visas and came to America in January 2023. But after August,  Hoshang was diagnosed with oral and dental cancer type 4. He underwent major surgery and has been receiving treatment for eight months, but now he needs other treatments that are not covered by insurance. According to his doctors, heavy chemotherapy and radiation therapy made him weak and now alternative ways should be sought. His wife Gullsoom Sediqi was a lawyer and defender of women's rights in Afghanistan. They now need help to save Hoshang.
