RIP

Khalifa Al Muhairi, a former Dubai policeman who was documenting his fight against cancer on social media, has sadly passed away after a six-year battle with the disease. 

Al Muhairi had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and had been undergoing chemotherapy when he died.

During his battle, Al Muhairi caught the attention of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, and the rest of the country.

His last post on Instagram, which showed him wearing an oxygen mask, was accompanied with a prayer for good health.

The Crown Prince of Dubai and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, both shared their condolences.

Last year, Al Muhairi had shared a video asking for financial support when he was informed that his treatment is likely to be around Dhs 3,000,000. The video caught the attention of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed, who helped him pay for the treatment.

May he rest in peace.
