Urgent Fundraising – Mohammad Firman Qaisar (Heart Disease)
“I enjoy playing football, but my nails and lips will turn cyanotic when I exercise. I will suffer from shortness of breath and even hypoxia, so I can’t play sports. Please help me so that I can undergo surgery.”
Mohammad Firman Qaisar Bin Mohd Farizal from Butterworth was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect at birth. Although he passed his childhood safe and sound, he now faces shortness of breath and cyanotic whenever he walks fast and climbs stairs.
Over the years, he has visited the hospital regularly for follow-up visits. He started to show symptoms of cyanosis last year, so the doctor said he needed surgery or his life might be at stake due to hypoxia. His parents were helpless as they could not afford the substantial surgical expenses. Hence, they plead with the public to help them with RM90,000 so their son can continue living.
【As he can’t play football on the field, Mohammad Firman Qaisar can only fulfil his desire by playing football-related video games. He can’t play sports in real life, so he satisfies his dreams online】
Mohammad Firman Qaisar was diagnosed with complex univentricular heart disease at birth. He went for two heart repairs and grew up safely for 12 years under the good care of his parents.
He was supposed to undergo surgery when he was seven, but the risk of pulmonary hypertension was too high then, so he did not have the surgery. The boy would feel shortness of breath when climbing stairs, but his classrooms were on the third and fourth floors in Year Four and Year Five. Therefore, his mother would carry his bag and accompany him to climb the stairs daily. During recess, his classmates would help him purchase food; he would also need to walk slowly down the stairs after school.
During a follow-up visit last year, the doctor found that his oxygen level dropped to 70%. His fingers, toes and lips were often cyanotic. Sometimes, he could not attend school and participate in extracurricular activities because he was weak.
His 51-year-old father, Mohammad Farizal Bin Abdullah, is a security guard with a monthly salary of about RM3,200. His 47-year-old mother, Julika Binti Usin, is a housewife. The couple has four children aged 22, 20, 17 and 12. All the children are still schooling. The couple’s financial burden is heavy, so they can’t afford the substantial surgical expenses.
After reviewing the case following a home visit, One Hope Charity decided to assist in raising the RM90,000 the boy needed. His family agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the well-wishers on their behalf.
