Sungai Petani, Kedah: Ever since he was a small boy, Muhammad Hafizzuddin Alias, 11, or fondly known as Hafiz among family and friends, has always been fascinated with BMW cars.
Sadly, Hafiz was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer, when he was six and has been battling the disease ever since. All he ever wanted was a ride in a white BMW car, a wish which went viral on social media. His wish was fulfilled by Auto Bavaria, when Hafiz was taken on a 20-minute ride in a BMW i8 around town by Paul Chan, Dealer Principal of Auto Bavaria Penang. The happiness on Hafiz’s face was evident to all present with his father Alias Saleh also commenting that it was the first time he has seen his son looking very happy in a long time. Hafiz who is now unable to speak or move much, is the third child among four siblings.
"At Auto Bavaria, we always believe in giving back to society. Hafiz' wish to ride in a BMW tugged at our heart strings and we are more than happy to be able to fulfil his wish and help his family as best we can."
Auto Bavaria has also commenced an internal donation drive in Sime Darby Motors and its operating units to help Hafiz family with monetary support and daily supplies including diapers, milk and other essential items.
Note: We are sad to inform that Hafiz passed away a week after his wish to ride in the white BMW was fulfilled
