Following is the story of a newly born baby:
Hi, I am 2 weeks old. I don't even have a name yet. But what I do have is a genetic disease called Maple Syrup Urine Disease. You probably haven't even heard of it. Lucky you! Unfortunately, I'm not as lucky as you are.
I'm lying in a hospital bed, connected to a ventilator life support. My parents don't have the money to pay my hospital bills and they'll probably be left with no other option than to switch off the life support and watch me die within 2 hours. They need about £1000 to make me well. Apparently, thats the cost of my life right now. My only hope is if you can help me with any amount of money that you are willing to donate to save me. Even a pound would help.
Please help me! I want to live...
