Dear Reds / @LFC,
Meet: Soel a.k.a @Soeljeckle.
A great lad from Bandung, Indonesia. He’s probably one of the most die-hard Liverpool supporters you could find here. He watches (almost) every Liverpool match, whether it was at midnight or the break of the dawn. He leads us chanting during the match. He also painted some great banners that decorated our home-base. In the Liverpool Asian Tour in 2009, his banners caught the attentions of Liverpool’s players and staffs, and his ‘Without A Rafalutionary Theory There Can Be No Rafalutionary Movement’ banner even got a smile from Rafa Benitez himself.
He loves Liverpool. He’s one of us.
Sadly, it’s been almost 2 months he can’t join us to watch the Redmen fighting, as he has his own private battle.
Two months ago he was founded unconscious at his room, and was brought to ICU immediately. Doctor said that he had Tuberculosis chronic. [1′ -Tuberculosis. SOEL 0-1 OPPONENT. ]
But, why he was founded in critical condition and unconscious? The TB Bacteria has attacked his meninges. Yes, he was diagnosed Meningitis, which can be life-threatening because of the inflammation’s proximity to the brain and spinal cord; therefore, the condition is classified as a medical emergency. [39′-Meningitis. SOEL 0-2 OPPONENT]
The first prognosis declared that Soel’s condition could be treated, and with intensive medical treatment he could be out from the hospital in 3 weeks. And although it’s hard for him to eat or breathe; in his first two weeks at hospital, Soel was making good progress.
However, after two weeks, his body was weaker and his medical condition was stagnant.
A week ago, after 50 days of fighting, Soel was getting worse. Spending so many days at hospital made his body resistance weaker. The Doctor also founded that he had another deadly disease, Pneumonia – an inflammatory condition of the lung. Life-supporting machine was installed for him and the doctor increased his drug dosage. [44′ – Pneumonia. SOEL 0-3 OPPONENT]
His doctor said that Soel’s recovery depend on his spirit, and support from his surroundings. The sound of the laughter, small chat with him (even though he barely speaks), the smiles from his friends, prayers from us, can boost his spirit.
HALF TIME. Soel is 3 goals down.
As his friends, families, and fellow supporters, we try to help Soel in any possible way, as the Travelling Kop did when The Redmen were 3 goals down at Ataturk Stadium. Be it through attendance at his bed side, prayers, or raising money to help his medical treatment. By doing this, we hope we can try to let him know that he didn’t go through his battle alone, and maybe try to ease his family burden.
We also think that it would be great if Soel knows that the club he supports at most of his time is interested in supporting its fans and hold the YNWA value. Thus we are making a humble request to the club and players to send wishes, prayers, or any merchandise for him for our dearly friends. We know that will mean a lot for him and will boost up his fighting spirit, knowing that He Never Walk Alone.
Oh ya, we also have raised some fund through our fundraising efforts but need further to be able to carry out the necessary treatment. Therefore, on January 13th 2013, prior to the match versus Manchester United, we’ll be holding an auction of Liverpool-themed items to raise more fund. The auction itself will carry throughout the week by using online-bidding method. We would be most grateful of you could consider assisting us with this auction in any ways. Providing a valuable/signed merchandise could one of them.
Please feel free to contact me on email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any further information.
As they did at Half Time at Istanbul, let’s send our prayers and any kind of support for Soel’s second half and LET HIM MAKE THE GREATEST COME BACK OF HIS LIFE!!
Soel, anggap saja ini Half Time loe.. Kami semua berdoa buat loe, untuk nyetak 3 gol lebih dan membalikkan keadaan. Semoga ga perlu adu penalti.
