Dear AKU family,
It is with great sorrow that we share the news that Dr. Uzma Yunus, ’95 has passed away. She leaves behind her husband Dheeraj Raina and two children, Shuja and Gauri.
Inspiration to many, Uzma became the strength to not just those suffering from breast cancer but anyone struggling with life. Through her story, she connected with others with stories to tell. She believed that “humans are designed to connect”. A daughter, wife, mother, doctor, and a patient, she shares her resilience and journey with breast cancer in her book “Left Boob Gone Rogue”. One of her last wishes was for us to read her book.
Uzma was a pillar of strength and hope for many, and will continue to be. She will be missed dearly.
May her soul rest in peace.
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
