After a car accident in 2014, a 36-year-old man trying to make a living in Kuala Lumpur was unfortunately diagnosed with Young-Onset Parkinson's Syndrome by doctors. This condition causes involuntary trembling and shaking of his limbs and head.

Thaneskumar A/L Marimuthu was knocked into a ditch by a lorry on his way home from work at the end of 2014, resulting in minor injuries for which he did not seek hospital treatment. Two weeks later, he began experiencing slowed movements and decided to get checked at Kuala Lumpur General Hospital. After undergoing X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans, he was diagnosed with Young-Onset Parkinson's Syndrome.

Following the illness, Thaneskumar lost his job and his source of income. He later withdrew funds from his Employees Provident Fund (EPF) and lived off it for almost a year. Eventually, due to the overwhelming expenses, he moved back to his hometown in Sungai Petani, Kedah.

His wife used to work at a mold factory, but earlier this year, her right fingers were severely injured when they got caught in a tray, requiring firefighters to spend two hours freeing her hand.

The couple has three children, aged 5, 7, and 11, who are all in school. Thaneskumar has six siblings, all of whom are married and have their own families to support, making it difficult for them to provide assistance. The family of five currently relies on assistance from the Welfare Department to sustain their lives.

Upon receiving the plea for help, the One Hope Charity dispatched representatives to the man's home for a visit. The foundation's board approved the provision of milk powder and diapers assistance to alleviate the man's burden.
