INDIA,( Uttar Pradesh ) 12-year-old Tarik belongs to Uttar Pradesh state of India. he has ‘big hands’ since the birth.When his father was alive he took him to the local doctors a lot. But his father passed away and he only has his mother now,
so he can’t get any treatment.Tarik’s older brother, Hargyan, takes care of Tarik and helps him with simple daily tasks that his hands prevent him from being able to do.It is difficult for Tarik to complete his daily chores like bathing, dressing, and eating.
The condition, which has not been diagnosed by doctors, has caused Tarik’s huge hands to grow to a length of 12 inches. .Sadly that has resulted in Tarik being bullied by his neighbours and friends.Tarik said: “It’s just we don’t have money for the treatment doesn’t mean it can’t be cured,
.” Every single doctor suggested to get Tarik a proper treatment. He has to stay like this till they have some money for the treatment. On a recent visit, Dr Pawan Kumar Gandhi said: “Tarik’s problem is actually a mystery to us. We’ve never seen a patient with this before.
Chances are low but nothing is impossible. In the age of science, there is lots of research, so nothing is impossible.Tarik said: “I want to get rid of this condition. I want to become like other kids who go to school everyday and play like normal kids. I see a hope that I will get normal hands.”
