Hi. I am starting this Fundraiser for someone who is very dear to me. Benjamin has become a close friend of mine and has supported me through hard times. As I said previously I am the parent of a special needs teenager, and Benjamin has been there for me at some very low points. He is a very sensitive person and considerate of others, and it is heartbreaking to know he is suffering. He is weak and in pain and will most likely need to travel abroad for the operation. For this he requires funding. He hates for people to know he is unwell and does not like to ask for help, but he is desperate. I also do not like to ask others for financial help, but it is for someone I care about a lot. The funds raised will go to the hospital performing the surgery. Please donate whatever you can. Thank you.
