This is Nathan's Story:
Nathan was born in the Seychelles Islands on 06- 19-2013, and weighed 3.6kg ( around 7.9lbs), Nathan started getting sick at 3 months old, Doctors in Seychelles said he had Bronchitis , Nathan and his Mom, Diana had to go to Dubai , where Nathan was then diagnosed with Cystic fibrosis at the age of 5 months old, he weighed 2.1kg ( 4.63 lbs ) .
Nathan was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis with pulmonary manifestation and his mutation was double Delta 508, Nathan is now 4 years old, he doesn't live a normal 4 year old boys life, he spend most of his waking hrs on medication, his medication consists of :
2 Oral Antibiotics, 1 inhaler Antibiotic , multivitamins, natural Antibiotics and enzymes, which he takes 16 capsules everyday. Nathan doesn't gain weight and his growth is under 5th percentile, Nathan weighs 11.9kg ( 26 lbs ), and has a hard time time eating solid foods.
For the last six months, Nathan has been coughing up blood due to Bronchiectasis and Bacteria, which has been living in Nathan's lungs, for 4 years now.
Nathan had Pseudomonas Aerugisona ( mucoid strain ) and Staphylococcus ( MRSA ).
Paperwork has been started for Nathan and his Mom, older brother and father to travel to California, for Nathan to get treatment here in the US, because Seychelles does not have the proper Hospital or Doctors to treat Cystic Fibrosis.. Jim has spoken to a representative at the Stanford Hospital in California, we are trying to raise money for Medical expenses, and travel expenses.
Nathan is a beautiful 4 year old , that just wants to able to play with his siblings, or go to School, he can't due to his severe illness...
please help this boy get Medical treatment here un the US, every little bit of help is so much appreciated.. if more information is needed, jim, myself and Nathan's family in Seychelles will be more the willing to provide.
Thank You so much in helping Nathan and his family lead a normal life as possible, due to Cystic Fibrosis.
Jim and Sally For Nathan Laporte
