Mohammed’s dream is to become a famous football player after recovery
Mohamed, from Fayoum, is diagnosed with brain tumor. In the beginning he suffered from fatigue, fever, headache, among other symptoms. The doctor asked for a CT scan, which detected a brain tumor. The doctor advised the mother to go to Hospital 57357 immediately. Mohammed was admitted on the 17th of Ramadan of last year where he had a surgery to remove the tumor in the same day. After the surgery Mohammed stayed in the Hospital for some time as he had some complications, then he started chemotherapy.
“Hospital 57357 is the poor people’s Hospital, God blessed us with it to support us and our children”, shares Mohammed’s Mom. “We used to watch its ads on TV. But I wasn’t sure that the treatment there was really for free. Later, I experienced how they do their best for the patient; it’s truly at the service of every patient for free, added Mohammed’s Mom. “May God bless everyone who shared in establishing this Hospital. I would like to contribute to the Hospital, but I my financial situation would not allow it; the one thing I can donate is my blood, exclaimed the Mother who explains: “Before my son was admitted, lots of people told me that in order to be accepted, the patient is to rely on favoritism or pay a sum of money ? But all this is untrue: when Mohammed started his treatment I witnessed for myself that they serve poor and rich people equally, all for free.
“Here I don’t feel that I am in a hospital, everyone is nice to me and I love how the doctor makes jokes while checking me up, shares Mohammed.” One more thing that makes me happy: I see Al-Ahly team players here a lot. The one I love the most, who I haven’t met yet, is Ramadan Sobhi, though he visited the hospital several times. I wish to become a famous football player when I grow up”, added Mohammed.
Mohammed is getting better despite the complexity of his condition. He has finished his chemotherapy and now is in the follow- up phase. We pray to God to completely heal Mohammed.
Many children with different circumstances are waiting for care and treatment. Though the number of children with cancer increase annually, and the hospital admits 40% of the children with cancer annually, this is not enough. The hospital needs to expand to be able to admit more patients and offer them free of charge treatment.
