Egyptian who boarded the ill-fated MS804 sold flat and car for wife's cancer treatment in France

Ahmed el-Ashry and his wife Reham Mosad 

Ahmed Ashery, 31, sold his family's flat and car to raise money so his wife Reham could undergo cancer surgery in France, according the Egyptian newspaper Masrawy.

The couple left their 3 children, a young son and two daughters with his mother and spent a month in Paris, where Mrs Ashery had surgery and was on the road to a full recovery.

They boarded Flight 804 on Wednesday night excited to be reunited with their small children but never made it back to Cairo, disappearing instead, in the plane crash.
