Background

From the Go Fund Me page. Mom Rehana has written this.Zahra was born with Fibula Hemimelia (severe lower limb deformity). She’s missing her right fibula (lower leg bone) and has a severe proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD).All of the doctors in the UK have now come to the conclusion that the only option for little Zahra is to amputate her leg from the ankle (Symes amputation). We have been under several doctors care which all advise the same thing. Due to Zahra’s condition being so rare, doctors in the UK have no treatment available for her. There are only a handful of children born with this condition in the UK, hence the knowledge and treatment are limited.We need to get Zahra to America to save her leg, by the best specialist doctor to operate on her hip, leg and ankle so she can lead a normal life with a normal looking and fully functioning leg. We will have to travel to Florida for her treatment and we will not be able to afford the travel, the stay, nor the 7 operations that we have been advised she requires.

The series of operations need to take place in America. Due to the complexity of the operations, they, of course, come with a huge expense. The family need to raise £150,000 to save Zahra’s leg. The family have set up a go fund me page. Please click here to read more and donate
