This is beautiful Tamseel. He is 10 years old now and currently studying in Grade 6.

From the day Tamseel was born there was just something so special about him. A decent boy inside and out and mature beyond his years, a child who always had a smile on his face and loved being the apple of his parents eyes. 

Soon after his birth, he had to face the complications of this world; he had to put effort in something, we never feel doing – breathing & digesting. Yes, he had to put effort in breathing and digesting food as well. His lungs and pancreas were not normal. But he could not tell anyone, he could not express it. Consequently, he fell sick and was taken to hospital. But the disease was not common and couldn’t be diagnosed.

Time continued ticking and he was still not diagnosed. Most of his life spent in hospital until he reached the age of 3 when doctors finally suggested to refer him for advanced treatment.

Dr. Jay Panikar and Dr. Nezar Kherala started treatment and soon diagnosed him a patient of cystic fibrosis, a life threatening disease.

The medication of cystic fibrosis is quite expensive and the patients have to spend a lot of time out of their daily routine on nebulization, physiotherapies and other exercises. At the same time, they have to take special meals and lots of medicines on daily basis.

It was time to begin Tamseel’s brave and courageous battle. Tamseel now in the prime of his life is dealing with more than any human should. In the last 7 years he had countless radiation and chemo treatments. Yet he’s still smiling and trying to live as a normal child should.

Praying for a miracle every day we live in hope that our prayers are finally being answered and he’ll be able to eat an ice cream one day. But this journey is long.

Doctors at Cleveland clinic have informed us that continued treatments are the best we can do to keep Tamseel comfortable.  He needs medical help with all his breaths and whenever he eats.

With all of these efforts comes a financial burden that no family should have to worry about while desperately trying to save the life of their child. All donations are appreciated and will help us do whatever needs to be done to give Tamseel a fighting day in his challenging life.
