One had heart deformation, and the other had complicated congenital heart disease. The two tiny hearts are at risk. They need your help to save them!
The two babies are still waiting to be saved. Looking at them with tubes inserted into their tiny bodies, the parents only hope that their child can undergo surgery and be discharged from the hospital as soon as possible so that they can reunite with their family in the coming Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
The babies are threatened by congenital heart disease and have been in the hospital for almost two months. Their devastated parents could not give up on them, so they pleaded a total of RM120,000 in medical expenses, hoping their baby could get rid of heart disease and reunite with the family.
The condition of Muhammad Aidan Ali Bin Muhammad Harith from Bukit Mertajam, Penang, is critical. He has been hospitalised since 17 February. Meanwhile, Muhammad Aqeel Fitri Bin Mohd Fikri from Penaga, Penang, born on 19 January, has relied on a breathing aid since birth. His mother once fainted due to overstress. The two families are asking the public to donate the RM120,000 they need.
【Case 1: A one-month-old baby boy was cyanotic at birth. His blood oxygen dropped drastically, and he was rushed to the intensive care unit. Recently, he developed complications and urgently needed RM60,000 to save his life】
A couple from Bukit Mertajam, Penang, finally had their child after marriage for a year. Unexpectedly, their newborn, Muhammad Aidan Ali bin Muhammad Harith, was cyanotic at birth. He was rushed to the intensive care unit for an oxygen supply. The doctor’s examination revealed he had severe congenital heart disease, where oxygen could not reach his whole body.
A thorough examination also revealed that he had severe dextro-Transposition of the Great Arteries (d-TGA), atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), where oxygen cannot deliver to his whole body. The doctor placed a stent immediately to allow oxygen supply to his body, and the baby boy is now relying on a breathing aid to breathe.
The baby boy is still unable to breathe on his own. He will experience shortness of breath and hypoxia once the oxygen mask is removed. Recently, he developed complications, namely pulmonary hypertension and paralysed left hemi diaphragm. He is still receiving care at the intensive care unit. The doctor suggested a plication of the left hemidiaphragm that cost RM60,000.
The baby’s 27-year-old father, Muhammad Harith Bin Rosli, is an air force with a basic salary of RM2,409. His 27-year-old mother, Wan Aisyah Binti Mior Mohd Tahir, is a housewife. The newborn is their first child after marriage. Unexpectedly, he was born with a heart defect and is still fighting for his life.
【Case 2: A two-month-old boy with complex congenital heart disease relied on a life support machine to survive. His parents plead for RM60,000 in medical expenses】
A two-month-old baby boy was diagnosed with complex congenital heart disease. He is fighting for his life and relying on a breathing aid in the hospital. His mother fainted and was hospitalised due to exhaustion.
Muhammad Aqeel Fitri Bin Mohd Fikri from Penaga, Penang, was born mid-January. He was rushed to the intensive care unit due to shortness of breath. Examination showed that he had severe and complicated congenital heart disease. He also had swollen heart, with transposition of the great arteries (TGA), double outlet right ventricle (DORV), atrial septal defect (ASD), coarctation of the aorta (CoA), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), distal aortic arch hypoplasia, ventricle septal defect (VSD), which are commonly known as having a hole in the heart, cardiovascular reversal, vascular stenosis, among others. He needs an aortic switch operation (ASO) and surgery to repair the heart defects.
He relies on a breathing aid and needs surgery as soon as possible. Otherwise, his survival rate will be almost zero. He needs to undergo two surgeries, but the oxygen level in his body still drops drastically. Therefore, he still cannot get rid of the oxygen supply. His parents plead for RM60,000 to pay for his medical expenses.
The family lives in Penaga, Penang. They are from low-income families. The parents always work hard to cover their living expenses, so they cannot afford the substantial surgical fee.
His 32-year-old father, Mohd Fikri Bin Saidin, is a kitchen assistant, earning RM1,200 a month. His 29-year-old mother, Nooradila Binti Zakaria, works in a restaurant with a monthly salary of RM1,200. The couple also has another six-year-old son.
