A 45-year-old man urgently needs to undergo a liver transplant so he can work again and continue to support his family.
Mohd Fazli Dazudin was forced to quit his job as an assistant contractor two years ago when he was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, which led to liver failure.
Now that he and his six children, aged four to 16, are relying solely on his wife’s income of only around RM2,000, it is impossible for him to raise RM350,000 to cover the cost of the transplant in India.
“I can’t work because I suffer from severe diarrhoea. I needed to use the toilet at least four to five times every day and night.
“This has also affected my sleep. I can still eat as normal, but because of the liver failure, the food does not provide enough energy to my body.
“I feel tired all the time. In these two years, I’ve already lost about 60kg,” he said, adding that he used to weigh 115kg.
Mohd Fazli also said he has since exhausted his Employees Provident Fund (EPF) savings of about RM42,000 for continuous treatment at Hospital Fatimah here.
“Before this, I did try to get myself treated at the Selayang Hospital in Selangor in 2013.
“But after 10 days of treatment, the doctors told me that medication cannot help me at this point. My only hope is a liver transplant,” he said, adding that he has been getting by on funds donated by relatives and friends.
Gopeng Umno division deputy chairman Hang Tuah Din said Mohd Fazli is appealing for public donations before his condition worsens.
Donors who would like to help Mohd Fazli can call Hang Tuah at 012-520 0981 for details.
