Boy Who Is Turning Into Stone Due To A Rare Condition Rejected In Community
The family of an eight-year-old boy with a rare painful skin condition is desperately searching for a cure to help their son Mehendi Hassan.
The Bangladeshi boy suffers from an unknown condition that gives his skin the appearance of having turned to stone.
From his neck down, his entire body is covered in thick bumpy scales that make it difficult for him to participate in his own life.
After noticing a suspicious rash on their newborn baby, his parents thought it was nothing more than mosquito bites. But when the rash began covering his body they quickly became alarmed.
They did whatever they could to get him the medical care he needed, such as working extra jobs to pay for his visits. But doctors were perplexed by his condition and weren’t able to diagnose him.
Broke and frustrated, his family gave up trying to find a cure.
The people in his village feared him and mistreated him terribly. He tried to attend school several times but was bullied and beat up by other students. Even teachers refused to interact with him.
His parents Jahanara Begum and Abul Kalam Azad said he cries every day, has no friends and has been rejected from their community ever since he was a baby.
They are currently begging the government to help their son find some answers and give him the medical care he so desperately needs.
Mehendi Lives His Days In Pain Looking For A Cure. May God see you through all this pain and may you find a cure soonest!
