"Tree man" Dede as he's known, has been ostracised by society because of his rare illness. He's seeking help from American doctor, Anthony Gaspari. Gaspari became involved in the case through a Discovery Channel documentary.

Dede was admitted to a local hospital in 1993, but doctors could not find a cure for his condition.
