More Info

The Accident

In July 2018, while Faris was at home on summer break from University he had a diving accident and broke the C-6 vertebrae in his neck.  He was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery which thankfully saved his life.  Tragically, Faris was left paralyzed and unable to move his legs and hands, perform daily activities or walk.  

Never one to quit despite the pain and emotional toll his injury has taken on him, in 2019 Faris began intensive physiotherapy and he has been willing and able to enroll in all promising clinical trials.  He made progress, but then the Covid-19 pandemic hit and he has been unable to resume his rehabilitation efforts.  Until now.

The Hope

Faris and his family need your help so that he can begin an innovative and cutting edge intensive physiotherapy treatment program in Turkey, where he will reside in the facility and resume his journey.  The expenses for this facility are quite high and Faris needs your help to pay for this program.  He needs this around-the-clock support from the staff along with the necessary equipment and physicians to accomplish his goals and to have the best possible chance of walking again someday.  

We know Faris has the drive, courage and spirit to accomplish so much and we are so grateful for any assistance you can provide to help him achieve his goal.

Update #2

Thank you everyone for your kind donations.
The story is as follows, I had an initial rehabilitation plan with a chain of rehabilitation centers, we had chosen a center and the cost for 6 months was posted, when this amount of positivity & kindness was spread, the center took notice and offered for Faris to stay in their state of the art center (which was financially impossible previously) at a very discounted rate, in return for Faris to be their success story. Therefore, we increased the amount to be raised in hopes of Faris reaching this center, and if not then the amount will cover the rest of his journey in the initial rehabilitation center, as it is a long journey.
