His eczema is so bad that on some days, Morgan Bishop's skin looks like it has been burned by acid. Read this brave little man's story here...
It’s a request a mother would never want to hear from her child: “Mummy, please let me die”.
But for five-year-old Morgan Bishop from the UK who is battling severe eczema, sometimes death seems preferable to the extreme pain of his condition.
Additionally, he suffers from asthma, food allergies and a kidney condition called FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome (which causes large amounts of protein to leak out of his kidneys), all of which started at a very young age.
For this little boy struggling with so many ailments, right now, his eczema is making him suffer the most. His mum Dana Bishop says that sometimes the eczema flares up so badly that her son’s skin looks like it has been burned with acid.
He can’t walk because the skin on his legs and feet is extremely sore especially during a flare-up, forcing him to use a mobility scooter to get around.
Little Morgan can only go to school for half days at a time because of the condition, and even while at school, sometimes his skin gets so itchy that he can’t even hold a pencil properly.
He often can’t sleep because of the pain, and is hardly ever able to play with his friends.
Morgan is rapidly running out of treatment options. Keep reading on the next page.
