Urgent Fundraising – Muhammad Hazmi (Stroke)
Oh gosh, he is just 15, and he had a stroke!
Don't ever think that only the elderly can suffer from strokes. A few days ago, Muhammad Hazmi Bin Shamsol Kamal's twin brother discovered that Muhammad Hazmi could not move his right limbs. The 15-year-old secondary school student from Nibong Tebal, South Seberang Perai, slurred his speech. He was also unable to get out of bed, so his family rushed him to a nearby hospital. An examination revealed that he had an acute infarct stroke.
The news shocked the parents. Moreover, the teenager needed emergency surgery to remove the blood clot, so he was referred to a specialist hospital for endovascular thrombectomy (EVT); otherwise, the teenager might have become paralysed for life. However, the parents were upset as they could not afford the RM50,000 in surgical expenses.
【He was about to enter Form Three, has been active in various sports, and has no medical history. The sudden stroke shocked everyone around him. Even the medical staff were also exploring the reasons for the stroke】
Muhammad Hazmi's house recently had a power outage, so the family waited for TNB to repair it. When the house's power supply was restored, it was almost midnight, and all of them were ready to go to bed. Unexpectedly, his twin brother discovered that Muhammad Hazmi's speech was slurred, and he could not get up from bed. He also could not move his right hand and foot, so his brother quickly called their father.
Seeing this, the father hurriedly sent Muhammad Hazmi to Sungai Bakap Hospital, and he was referred to Seberang Jaya Hospital for a thorough examination. He was diagnosed with cerebral vascular obstruction and needed emergency surgery to remove the blood clot. Otherwise, his body would not get sufficient oxygen supply, leading to brain necrosis resulting in lifelong paralysed for teens, destroying their future.
The doctor said there was only one option: to transfer Muhammad Hazmi to a specialist hospital for surgery within the golden window. Any delay would cause further brain cell necrosis, and any treatment would not be adequate by then. However, the parents were distraught. They were worried as they could not afford the RM50,000 surgical expenses and their son's condition.
His 50-year-old father, Shamsol Kamal Bin Ismail, is a kampung labourer, earning about RM1,500 a month. His 48-year-old mother, Zaiton Binti Mohamed, is a housewife. The couple has three other children aged 23, 17 and 15. The father's meagre income can barely support the family, and he cannot pay for the substantial medical expenses. Hence, they approached One Hope Charity for Help.
The family agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the well-wishers on their behalf. Call our hotline at 016-419 2192 or 019-232 2192 if you have any questions.
