I found this in NST. I really pity them, because they can't do anything except praying and asking for help from other people. Let's show them what we mean by future, because for them, their future is clouded by uncertain things.
These babies need your help
By Natasha Ilyas
KUALA LUMPUR: Wan Aidil Danish Wan Ismaile Anis, who suffered a heart attack on Nov 8, urgently needs surgery as he cannot breathe properly.
An operation scheduled for today at the Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre (GIMC) had to be postponed due to an infection.
Wan Aidil was supposed to be sent from Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM), where he has been treated for eight days, to GIMC for the surgery.
However, he will have to remain at HUKM for another seven to 10 days until the infection clears.
Doctors had diagnosed Wan Aidil's problem as arising from the left coronary blood vessel coming from the pulmonary artery instead of the aorta, resulting in a lack of oxygen.
His mother, Nurul 'Ain Rahimi, 29, is still in shock over her third child's condition.
"I cannot believe what is happening to my son. I want him to recover as fast as possible," the sales assistant, who earns RM750 a month, said.
"My baby has been suffering for the past three months and needs urgent surgery."
GIMC paediatric cardiologist Dr Lim Miin Kang said the surgery would be carried out as soon as the infection cleared and Wan Aidil was strong enough for the operation.
The operation will cost RM50,000 which his father, Wan Ismaile Anis, who earns RM1,500 as a member of a film production crew, cannot afford.
He has only managed to come up with RM7,500 from his Employees Provident Fund (EPF) savings.
"We are appealing to the New Straits Times readers to help us raise the remainder to help save our child's life," Nurul 'Ain said.
Meanwhile, 2-month-old Ee Gen Quan, who is suffering from a disruption of blood flow to the lungs, also needs urgent surgery.
His mother Tan Yang Fong, 31, noticed a month ago that her son's nose and throat were blocked with phlegm making it difficult for him to breath.
Gen Quan, who suffers from a condition called total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage, needs RM30,000 for the operation at GIMC.
The family has raised RM10,000 with the help of relatives and the EPF savings of his father, Chin Woon.

For those who gave something to them, whatever it is, as a person who is still living in this world, I'm really thankful to you. This is what we called life.
