Farid’s Journey

Farid, a much loved first child for parents Ahmed and Sherine, was born on 28th November 2011. Farid is a big football fan but also likes computer games – especially Pac Man.

Farid was a happy and thriving baby; Ahmed and Sherine celebrated every milestone with him and were always amazed by his appetite! He was a healthy toddler and would choose carrots and cucumber over anything else.

At 3 years old, Farid began to have regular temperatures but he’d take paracetamol and they’d go away. He was still a happy and sociable little boy; he made friends easily and welcomed his new baby sister into the world.

Some months later as Farid and his family were settling in to their new life in Sunderland, Farid became unwell with vomiting, which was initially put down to the amount of bell peppers and vegetables he’d eaten. When Sherine lifted him the following day she recalls, “I felt a small lump with my fingertips on Farid’s left side and it was moving.”

All donations are paid into Solving Kids’ Cancer’s (SKC) general funds to further its general charitable purposes. The funds raised by this Journey are not restricted for the child’s use. However, the trustees of SKC have agreed to designate 90% of funds raised by this Journey to help the child and their family pay for potential future treatment costs and all other associated costs including travel and accommodation. We will use the remaining 10% to pay for SKC’s administrative and fundraising costs.

If the child no longer needs the funds, or if the trustees decide, at their absolute discretion, that the funds should be used for a different purpose, they may redesignate all or part of the 90% for SKC general charitable purposes. We are very grateful for your charitable donation.
