Sonny Mikaele.

Tunaimati’a Kosema and Ruta Mikaele Tevaga, the parents of Sonny Mikaele, are extremely grateful.

Their son suffers from chronic septic arthritis. They have just recently returned from Hawai’i where they sought medical treatment. Prior to their departure, his father, Kosema Mikaele, went public, through the Samoa Observer, with his plea for help.

“We sought assistance from Orthopedist, Dr. Talalelei, who is in partnership with Shriners Hospital for Children in Honolulu, Hawai’i,” he said at the time.

 “The hospital has offered to pay for his airfare, however in terms of accommodations, we will have to cover that on our own, hence the plea for help.”

The story was published and shared online where the family were able to get the help they needed. In a letter written in the Samoan language, the parents heartily acknowledge everyone who assisted. The letter is published below:
