My son Eyzra started experiencing headaches in January 2009, thanks to a quick diagnosis we did the MRI and proceeded with neurosurgery.
Because of the many hospital visits I accompanied Eyzra, it took a toll on my mind and many times I wished I had some support to keep me going… It was during one ward admission that I bumped into Dr David Low and he asked me, “Sheeba… has Eyzra joined BTSS yet?” and that’s how I got to know about BTSS!
How was Eyzra benefited after joining BTSS? Activities like Baking allows him to bond and mingle with adult survivours and I find it productive for him to get to know a likeminded community like BTSS.
It is such a joy having BTSS as part of my son’s journey and looking back… I wished those hours that I spent waiting at the consultation rooms… there was some support group formed like BTSS… that could give Caregivers like myself… a voice, also thankful for the good work BTSS does in connecting and caring for beneficiaries like me and Eyzra.
Eyzra is pursuing his GCE N’Levels in September 2018, and will be headed to Ohio, United States on 30th August 2018, thanks to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
