Farel, a patient suffering from life-threatening sleep apnea, needs your help!
Farel is suffering from obesity and his weight has been steadily increasing. The four-year-old toddler now weighs as much as an adult. With his condition, snoring is a normal occurence for Farel. However, his parents became extremely concerned when they find Farel often stops breathing in his sleep. His parents brought Farel to a doctor to get his condition checked.
Doctors diagnosed Farel with Prader Willi Syndrome and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Prader Willi Syndrome is a rare, chronic genetic disorder that manifests itself in the form of weakened muscle and insatiable appetite that drives obesity as in Farel's case. Meanwhile, Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a life-threatening condition where people stop breathing in their sleep for 10-45 seconds due to obstructions in their breathing pathway. Farel has been going back-and-forth to hospitals to get treatment for lung infections and lowered oxygen levels due to the complications from OSA.
Farel's concerning condition requires a lot of attention on the disease analysis and treatments. Farel needs to undergo various check-ups to diagnose the complications he is suffering from, such as DNA analysis and Polysomnography. Other than that, the treatment recommended by doctors includes having a CPAP equipment at home to reduce the occurrence of breathing pauses as well as a diet that requires a special milk (Tropicana Slim).
Farel's parents are worried about the mounting bills that Farel's treatment and diagnosis accumulates. His father is a private employee pensioner and his mother a Jakarta civil servant. Their family income is barely sufficient to pay for their family's daily necessities and Farel's costly treatment and needs.
Let us help Farel recover from his rare condition so that he can live a normal life as a toddler!
