My name is Deon van Rhyn, from Pretoria Gauteng. I am raising money for Benjamin who is 1 year and 6 months old
Benjamin was born with Encephalocele, this is a rare condition where part of the brain and the membranes that cover it protrudes through openings in the skull. Doctors never expected him to make it past being born. ??He is now 1 year and 6 months old, having undergone two brain surgeries in his short life.
Unfortunately, he has also been diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, Scoliosis, Klippel-Feil syndrome and Sprengel deformity. Benjamin recently spent 10 days in the hospital with pneumonia caused by his Scoliosis compressing part of his left lung.
We are reaching out to everyone to help buy Benjamin a purpose-built Wheelchair buggy to help with his Scoliosis, it is designed to help with his posture, and improve mobility for him.
We would like to raise the funds as soon as possible.
Full costs will go towards the buying of a wheelchair for Benjamin
The wheelchair buggy will help with his Scoliosis, it is designed to help with his posture, and improve mobility for him.
