As we go into the festive, celebratory mood, with Diwali and year end looming around the corner, little Adriano Allasamy, only five-years-old, does not even know the meaning or feeling of happiness or the emotions to express his pain or love he feels for his mother.

Little Adriano Allasamy, from Unit 10 in Phoenix desperately needs the community to assist with funds so that he can have a much needed stem cell operation. In an exclusive interview with The Rising Sun, Adriano’s mother, Andrea Pillay said that he has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, development delay and features of autism.

“He has been suffering with this illness since he was born. He is five years old but behaves like a one and a half year old child. It is very difficult for me. My life fell apart when he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. His father could not handle the situation and is no longer in Adriano’s life, and I am unemployed at the moment as Adriano needs constant care”, she explained.

“Adriano’s behaviour is very erratic I can’t take him to places as I do not know how he will behave. I took him to a take-away recently and two gentlemen at the establishment asked me to leave because Adriano started to scream. Children not knowing the situation, mock him, because they do not understand his illness”, she added.

The Rising Sun recently did an expose` about five-year-old Eli Carter Ross from Northcroft, who also needs stem cell treatment. Andrea said that she also attended a discussion about stem oxygen cell treatment with Eli’s parents. The doctor who conducts the stem cell treatment runs an institute in Mumbai, India. Doctor Alok Sharma was the main guest speaker at the discussion. The name of the centre is Nuerogen Brain And Spine Institute.

During the discussion, parents who attended were given in-depth information about the stem cell treatment (theological and scientific proof were presented). Once the treatment is done documentation of progress (videos) is observed.

The doctor needs to extract stem cells from his hip and inject it into his spinal cord. This will assist in the recovery of his damaged brain cells.

“I would like to take Adriano for his treatment by the end of this year. The quicker the operation is done the better the results will be. I require about R160 000 for travelling fees, accommodation, food and his treatment. I have managed to raise R80 000 thus far, through friends and family and social media”, she said.

“I have to give him this chance otherwise I would have failed him as his mother”, she said.

Adriano attends Fairyland Crèche which is owned by Sandy Singh who also owns The Beauty Specialist Academy. Sandy will be organizing a pamper week from 4 to 11 November 2017 and all proceeds will go towards the fund for Adriano. The package is a one hour pedicure and manicure and the price is R150. When booking use the reference Adriano. The Beauty Specialist Academy is situated at 9 Arbee Centre, Gemcity, above the Tile Market, call (031) 8267967 to book. Corporate and senior citizens are welcome to book. She is also challenging other businesses and individuals, to please look into their hearts and pockets to do the same to make it possible for Adriano to go for his operation. It will be life changing for little Adriano, to feel and experience a different life.
