Iman Merali gets wish to see pop band “One Direction”

Iman Merali gets wish to see pop band "One Direction"via – Iman Merali is going to see One Direction Thursday night, but unlike most teenagers, she has had to overcome some extraordinary obstacles to get there.

On the cusp of her sixteenth birthday, Iman is planning to enjoy the next 24 hours like there’s no tomorrow.

“How long she’ll survive, we’ve talked about death; things that I don’t really expect to talk about but we… we do…,” said Nash Hirani, Iman’s mother.

Unlike most 16-year-old girls, Iman is facing an unusual battle. She’s fighting cancer, a rare form that only affects about three people a year at the Children’s.

“Rhabdomyosarcoma is a cancer that children get anywhere in their body and it starts in the muscle fibres,” explained oncologist Sharon Abish.
