Khasims Story


Hi. My name is Peter Burton. This is a picture of me and my beloved son Khasim. The reason I am writing this blog is because my son needs your help.

On Aug. 14th, 2010, my son Khasim was living a typical 15-year-old life, playing sports, hanging out with friends, and getting ready to go back to school, until a serious disease took over his body.

He was hanging out with his friends when he started to feel a tingling sensation in his legs. He called his mom to pick him up because it was hard for him to walk. Him and his mom thought that maybe he was playing too hard and that all he needed was some rest. When he woke the next morning he was paralyzed! He was rushed to the hospital and had many test ran on him. The doctors have diagnosed him with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

If you know anything about this disease you know that the patient needs to be treated right away for a speedy recovery. The longer he goes without treatment the longer it takes to recover. You can read more about this disease by clicking the link below.

My son lives with his mom on the Caribbean island Dominica. He is now lying in a bed in the hospital not being treated because they don’t have the resources that Khasim needs to be treated. He has to be medically transported by air from the hospital in Dominica to a hospital on the island of Martinique to be treated. This is a very expensive process. Not only do we have to pay to get him to get to Martinique the hospital there won’t start treatment until they have proof of payment.
