I am Christopher Leandro. I have a dream, my dream is to become a normal person, live joyously with both hands and to take care of myself and be independence.
In the governement’s eye, I am not considered as a disabled person and not entitled to any disability allowances at all. In the society, I am considered 100% disabled and most of the employers would not hire me or even refuse to give me any reason as to why I am not suitable for the job.
I am 27 years old, I was born with no right palm. When I was only 2 years of age, I had already undergone 5 or 6 surgeries but all failed. I even lost one of my toe. I have been living with my one hand palm for my entire life. I got bullied all the time while I was at school. Even now, I am a grown up man, I could not even get a job that can actually support my life. All I want is to be a normal man. I do not want to be a burden of my family, I want to be the one that they can rely on.
I wish I could have a chance to change my life. I want to have a hand. I want to hold a book with two hands and ten fingers. I want to be able to carry groceries with my both hands. I want to type with my both hands and fingers.
I am here to ask for your help. I wish to install an robotic artificial hand. Please help me with my dream.
The money raised is for doctor's consultation, travelling and accomodation in US.
God bless you all.
