Urgent Fundraising – Fahrian Faizin (Neuroblastoma)



"Why do I have to go to the hospital? Why do I need treatment?" Fahrian Faizin would always ask his parents before heading to the hospital.

Unbeknownst to him, within his small body, the unfortunate presence of Neuroblastoma, a common malignant tumor originating from immature nerve cells in children, had emerged. He didn't cry or fuss, nor did he show any signs of vulnerability; he simply waited quietly for his parents to answer him.

This little boy from Puchong, Selangor, was diagnosed at the tender age of 4. Over the past year, he has undergone 5 stages of treatment, including multiple rounds of high and low-dose chemotherapy, and tumor resection surgeries. Upon receiving his parents' response, he simply accepted the reality of his illness and proceeded to the hospital to continue this long journey of treatment.

【A single playful moment led to a serious illness? Despite harboring a serious illness, the child is obedient and understanding, not crying or making a fuss, doing his best to prevent his parents from worrying】

In October 2022, Fahrian Faizin was playing with his brothers in his parents' hometown when things got a little too rough, and he was accidentally kicked in the abdomen by one of his brothers. Despite initially appearing fine, he began to experience pain and fever later that night. Concerned, his parents quickly took him to a clinic for examination. Due to the pain being localized in the lower right abdomen, there was initial suspicion of appendicitis, causing his mother, Nur Aishah binti Zulkiflie (35 years old), to worry about a potential ruptured appendix. They rushed him to the hospital for further examination.

To their surprise, preliminary examinations by the doctors raised suspicions of a tumor, and further scans confirmed that Fahrian was suffering from stage three neuroblastoma. The doctors informed Fahrian's parents that the tumor may have started forming as early as the beginning of 2022, with few symptoms appearing during that time. The timely detection of the tumor was described as fortunate amidst the unfortunate circumstances. The hospital immediately began a comprehensive six-stage treatment plan for him.

Nur Aishah revealed that Fahrian rarely cried or complained during the treatment, possibly because he had few obvious symptoms or discomfort beforehand. When asked why he needed treatment before leaving home for the hospital, he would simply inquire about the reason and obediently follow along after being given an explanation. She also expressed deep concern for her young son's illness at such a tender age, but he seldom showed the helplessness typical of most children, seemingly wanting to reassure his parents.

【The medication expenses for the younger son have placed a heavy burden on the family, leaving them with no choice but to seek help from the public, hoping for generous contributions】

As Fahrian Faizin entered the final stage of immunotherapy, he experienced fever after his first dose of medication. However, by the second dose, his condition stabilized, and he showed no significant symptoms. Nonetheless, the immunotherapy medication imported from overseas comes with a hefty price tag. Over the past two years, Fahrian's parents have depleted their savings to cover his treatment expenses. They are now doing everything they can to raise some of the medication costs. Unfortunately, their financial situation is tight, and they are still short of a whopping RM 106,772 to purchase the required medication.

The breadwinner of the family, Hazman bin Hisammuddin (36 years old), works as a service advisor at an automobile repair service center, earning approximately RM 4,000 per month. Fahrian's mother, Nur Aishah, is a housewife, and together they have three children, aged 10, 8, and 1. They currently live with their grandparents and are responsible for car loans, living expenses, education costs, and miscellaneous expenses, with their monthly expenditures nearly matching their income.

Following a home visit and assessment, One Hope Charity has decided to raise the necessary medical funds for them. The family has agreed to entrust the fundraising efforts entirely to the One Hope Charity, which will also handle the collection of donations.One Hope Charity will allocate RM 10,000 from its "Emergency Medical Reserve Fund" for this case.
