Help Ghulaam Brown

Personal message

During the last couple of years, we started noticing changes in our son, Ghulaam's body. At first, his chest made a small indentation and this grew worse and is not really sunken. His back and posture started going skew. Doctors in and out, Hospital in and out, with no-one really helping. 

It was then this pain tablet, then that, but nothing is helping. Everyone just told us that there was nothing else to do. No cure, but no one could tell us what the diagnosis was. For a long time, the doctors said it is not Marfans Syndrome or Scoliosis. We must wait some more. Now at last we can put a name to Ghulaam's symptoms. The doctor diagnosed Marfan Syndrome, Scoliosis, and heart problems. 

His sunken chest is now putting pressure on his heart and lungs. He is also suffering from heart palpitations for which the doctor prescribed Beta-blockers. We don't have the funds to take him to Groote Schuur Hospital for treatment of his conditions. 

Till now, we were very despondent and we did not know what to do. Now there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Ghulaam is 18 years old and completed matric last year. Looking back over the years, Ghulaam was a chubby child and suddenly started losing weight around the age of 15. During this period he had a growth spur and that was when the trouble with his health started.

The funds that will be raised will be used towards transportation costs, accommodation and food whilst in Cape Town for Ghulaam and his mother (as she will need to accompany him).

We hope this will enable Ghulaam to live a full and happy life therefore we ask your assistance in raising the much-needed funds.

PLEASE HELP.
