The two-year-old boy was diagnosed with severe heart disease shortly after he was born. However, the scheduled heart surgery forced to be delayed for two years due to hydrocephalus and hyperleukocytosis (high white blood cell count). And now, his brain condition and the white blood cell count are under control, but his heart condition deteriorated due to the deferment of his heart surgery, so he needs to undergo the surgery as soon as possible, but his parents are unable to afford the surgical fee amounting to RM120,000.
Malay boy Muhammad Hanif Bin Mahamad Sukri from Kedah, was diagnosed with severe heart disease at birth. At that time, his heart could not supply blood to the other parts of his body. The doctor implanted a stent for his heart and he spent over three months in the intensive care unit of a hospital. He has been relying on medication to stabilise his condition all this while.
Shortly after he was discharged, he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus and hyperleukocytosis by the doctor. He has been in and out of the hospital for the past two years, and his heart surgery was forced to be postponed due to his medical conditions.
Until recently, his hydrocephalus and hyperleukocytosis have been cured, but his heart condition deteriorated. He needs to undergo the long-delayed heart surgery as soon as possible to save life.
The cardiologist examined him once again after two years, and he was diagnosed with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PAIVS) and ventricular septal defect (VSD). Besides repairing his heart, removal of the stent which was implanted two years ago also need to be done.
As his condition has become more serious and the surgery has become more complicated, the surgical fee is cost at RM120,000. The doctor told the parents that it is no longer suitable for him to delay the surgery, as the surgery has to be done when he is 10kg, so it is now the critical moment for the little boy.
The boy's 46-year-old father Mahamad Sukri Bin Ibrahim is a gardener of a school, earning slightly over RM1,000 a month and his 46-year-old mother Salma Binti Che Man is a housewife. She also suffers from heart disease and needs to be on medication and regular monitoring of her condition. They still have another three children - the 11-year-old eldest son and a pair of 10-year-old twins.
