PAYPAL ACCOUNT NOT NEEDED. CREDIT CARDS CAN BE USED. IN THE FINAL CHECKOUT WINDOW, PLEASE SELECT "BUY AS A GUEST." Zarrar Rahman, who turned 7 last March, was diagnosed with a Brain Stem Glioma. We need your help to keep him alive.
Zarrar Rahman, who turned 7 this March, lights up a room the minute he walks into it. A really intelligent little boy ... his infectious smile, and his endless supply of energy brightens up the gloomiest day. Our hearts broke this weekend when we found out that Zarrar was diagnosed with a brain tumor less than a week ago in China at a very advanced stage of the disease. Because of the lack of medical expertise available to treat his complicated situation there, he was moved to Singapore yesterday. The cost of his full treatment will be in excess of $US 200,000. Just the initial surgery will be in the $US 45,000 range. His parents simply don't have that kind of money. [THESE COSTS ARE BASED ON CONSULTATIONS WITH THE FOLLOWING INSTITUTIONS IN SINGAPORE: NATIONAL UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, MOUNT ELIZABETH HOSPITAL, AND KK WOMEN'S AND CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL]. It is like being diagnosed with brain cancer and not have any medical insurance here in the United States. Despite the financial contributions of Zarrar's extended family members, it will be impossible to fully help Zarrar without the generosity of people like you. Please help make a difference in this world by helping to save this little boy that we love with all our hearts.

For those of you that are practicing Muslims, please consider giving your Zakat dues to this cause. In Surah Al-Ma'ida, verse 32, Allah says: “… and whoever keeps [a soul] alive, it is as though he kept alive all of humanity …” Please help us keep Zarrar alive.

Donating is as simple as clicking a couple of buttons. Please give generously and surely you and your loved ones will be rewarded by God.
