Urgent Fundraising – Muhammad Khairul Izzar (Heart Disease)
The adorable boy shows no signs of his condition, yet, afflicted with congenital heart disease, his body is like a ticking time bomb, requiring urgent surgery to save his life. Without intervention, his life is at imminent risk!
Hailing from Yan, Kedah, Muhammad Khairul Izzar bin Muhamad Zahari appeared normal at birth. However, at the age of one month, he was referred to the hospital for examination due to a rapid heartbeat. The diagnosis revealed a heart defect. Now weighing 8kg, the boy needs surgery before reaching 10kg to secure his life. Faced with desperation, his parents appeal for financial assistance to cover the RM90,000 surgery cost.
【He shows no symptoms at all, only an accelerated heartbeat. However, without surgery, he is at risk of heart failure at any time】
Muhammad Khairul Izzar had a normal fetal and newborn period until one month old when, during a routine check-up, a nurse informed the parents that the child had an accelerated heartbeat and rapid breathing. He was then referred to the Sungai Petani Hospital for further examination, and subsequently to the Central Hospital for a detailed check-up. The diagnosis revealed that the baby boy was suffering from Pulmonary Atresia/VSD (Pulmonary Atresia with Ventricular Septal Defect), a condition where the pulmonary valve is not formed properly, accompanied by a hole in the heart's wall.
Due to the critical condition, a stent implantation procedure was performed when the baby was two months old to temporarily alleviate the condition. The parents regularly visited the hospital for follow-up check-ups, and the baby safely passed 10 months. However, recent medical updates indicated that the stent implanted earlier could only support a weight of up to 10 kilograms. As the baby currently weighs 8 kilograms, there is a need for surgery to replace the stent before reaching 10 kilograms, or the baby's life will be at risk.
The baby is currently at home, showing signs of restlessness and occasional rapid breathing. He tends to slow down and breathe heavily after physical activity. Due to the child's fragile health and susceptibility to bacterial infections, the parents take extra precautions and avoid taking the child outside.
Muhamad Zahari Bin Jusoh (34 years old), the father, works as a lorry driver with a monthly income of about RM2,800. The mother, Nor Hidayah bt Rodzali (38 years old), was a clinic assistant before marriage and has been a housewife since. The couple has two daughters aged 7 and 3.
After review, One Hope Charity has decided to raise funds for the required medical expenses for the baby. The parents have agreed to entrust the fundraising activities to the ONE HOPE CHARITY, which will also collect the donations. ONE HOPE CHARITY has allocated RM10,000 from the "Emergency Medical Reserve Fund" for this case.
