My name is Rehana and i am the mother of 3 year old Zahra, who was born with Fibula Hemimelia (severe lower limb deformity). She’s missing her right fibula (lower leg bone) and has severe proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD).
All of the doctors in the UK have now came to the conclusion that the only option for little Zahra is to amputate her leg (symes amputation). We have been under several doctors care which all advise the same thing.
Due to Zahras condition being so rare, doctors in the UK have no treatment available for her. There are only a handful of children born with this condition, hence the knowledge and treatment is limited.
We need to get Zahra to America to save her leg, by the best specialist doctor to operate on her hip, leg and ankle so she can lead a normal life with a normal looking and full functioning leg. We will have to travel to Florida for her treatment and we will not be able to afford the travel, the stay, nor the 7 operations that we have been advised she requires.
We have already raised over £50,000 on our Gofundme page but we still need another £100,000.
Please donate whatever you can, please forward this page to everyone you know, everyone that can help. If you want to contact me personally, please do. If you know of different trusts / organisations / fundraisers that can help me out, please do get in touch. We need every bit of help that we can get. All of us will be forever grateful.
