Shakib is suffering from Neurofibromatosis. It is a rare condition that causes tumours to form in the brain, spinal cord and nerves. It is a known cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. In addition, learning disabilities are a common problem.
31-year-old Shakib is living a tough life with his bizarre face weighing down. A considerable lump weighing down, stretching his eye, lips and ear skin, takes away his confidence. As a result, he cannot see and hear clearly from the left side. He finds it challenging to eat and speak properly. In addition, his ear always smells terrible because of the infection. Furthermore, his whole back is filled with blister-like lumps. Therefore he needs immediate treatment.
"I am tired of living a terrible life. I am unable to eat, hear and see correctly. Nobody gives me work because of my face. Every time I do heavy work, my face swells up. I am overburdened with responsibilities. I am afraid if I die, who will look after my wife and children." Shakib
Poor Shakib works as a labourer despite his health condition to feed his wife and children. He lost his work for the last four months because of his worsening health condition. He was the breadwinner carrying the burden of five family members and his long-time ailment. His wife, Rukhsar, is a housewife worried about Shakib's worsening health and her children.
"Abba, what is wrong with your face? Our friends make fun of us because of you.'' Shakib's children question their father as their friends make fun of them because of Shakib's health condition.
