Mother ailing boy in India writes an emotional letter to President Uhuru

Veronica Njeri and her son Ethan Macharia have been stuck in India for several weeks now. The mother to five years old boy who is ailing has written an emotional letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Veronica says she is unable to pay for the son’s surgery, which he is supposed to undergo.

The letter is titled “Dear Mr. President.”

Veronica appeals to the Head of State and good Samaritans to assist her in raising Ksh. 3.5 million, which are required for Ethan’s surgery.

She says that the son slipped and fell on the ground while playing with friends at home in 2018. Unfortunately, he sustained life-threatening injuries on his head.

In addition to the injuries, Ethan developed violent seizures. The seizures put his life at risk of grave bodily harm.

The boy’s life changed since he has never resumed school due to the frequent violent seizures he develops daily.

In the letter, Veronica said, “My son was living a normal life like any other child, but the unfortunate incident changed our lives.”

Besides, she said, “For the last 14 months we have been trying to raise some money which is not yet enough. He is supposed to undergo surgery. The doctors say it is known as Palliative VNS. Specifically, the surgical procedure is meant to suppress his daily seizures, which occurred after falling.”

According to Indian doctors, VNS surgery is crucial for Ethan’s seizure. They have been trying to control it with multiple drugs, but it has not been successful.

The doctors said surgery is the only suitable option for pharmaco-resistant epileptic patients. The patient’s epileptogenic focus is localized and managed through surgical intervention.

At the end of the letter, Ethan says that he hopes the mother will get the help to pay for the surgery. When he heals, he wants to follow his dream of becoming a footballer.
