Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund helps child with Prader-Willi syndrome

from The Toronto Star

At 2 years old, Muheera Mahmood still can't walk. Prader-Willi syndrome has delayed her growth and development, forcing her mom, who holds a master's degree in food science and technology from Pakistan, to stay home to care for her daughter. "The daycares simply refuse to take her," said Sidra Mahmood, 29, whose full attention is needed for Muheera's care. Prader-Willi is congenital, and while Muheera is trapped in a body that will limit her mental and physical development, Mahmood is trapped in her Toronto home, alone. "Unfortunately, because of the medical condition of my daughter, I can't go back to Pakistan," Mahmood said. "I have no family friends over here so it's very hard for me." more
