Help Save Brody

Personal message

Your Support can help save little Brody’s life. Diagnosed with C.H.A.R.G.E Syndrome Baby Brody is in urgent need of funds for his surgery and treatment. 

Baby Brody from Kwa-Zulu Natal was diagnosed with C.H.A.R.G.E SYNDROME  April 2021 when he was just 1.5 months old. The news of Brody’’s diagnosis has been absolutely devastating to the family as there where no signs during moms pregnancy. 

C.H.A.R.G.E SYNDROME is a disorder that affects many areas of the body. CHARGE is an abbreviation for several of the features common in the disorder: Brody has  choanal atresia and genital abnormalities along with Grade IV Vesicoureteral Reflux with Hydronephrosis & Hydroureter and Horseshoe Kidneys resulting in only having 71% kidney function of the right side and 30% kidney function of the left side. 

In and out of hospital

Brody was just 3 days old when he first got admitted with Neonatal sepsis, Jaundice and Meningitis. He was on Intravenous antibiotic for 21days in a Government Hospital where and at not even 1 month old he had already received 3 Lumber punchers, however in the Government facility they did not look for the cause of his infection and failed to do any investigations to find the cause . Brody was discharged and not even 4 days later he was readmitted, this time into a private hospital where they started investigating the matter. After some intense scans and x-rays they managed to find the Vesicoureteral Reflux on day 3, after doing a CT scan they discovered he had Choanal Atresia and Diagnosed Baby Brody with CHARGE Syndrome. On May 17th Brody got admitted again due to high infection counts, where he ended up fighting a life threatening CRE bacterial infection. He was in hospital for 25 days in June before being transferred to another hospital to perform the surgery planned, however during the Cystoscope the surgeon discovered Baby Brody had Horseshoe kidneys and could not perform the planed Surgery to implant a stent as Brody’s Ureter was not where it was meant to be, within a few min, His heart rate dropped and he landed up in ICU Highcare where he recovered. His little Body was not strong enough to handle it any more. Once Brody recovered he Received this Choanal Atresia Surgery on the 7th of July  to assist with his breathing as he had complete blockade in his nose and was only receiving oxygen trough 1 airway

In July Brody spent another 16 days in Hospital with Klebsiella pneumoniae and E.coli Bacterial infections unfortunately Brody started getting resistant to the Antibiotics he was getting and this is when they performed the Bladder washout. This procedure heald out long enough for Brody to stay healthy to permorm his Ureteral reimplantation surgery in October . Brody was in Surgery for 4 hours on the 14th of October and spent 4 days in ICU Highcare due to complications. On the 21st of October hee went back into theater to remove the stents due to the risk of infection. on the 29th of October Brody then got admitted .

Funds needed

Little Brody who is just 7 months old has spent more than 70% of his life in hospital, before his parents managed to put him on a hospital plan, he was in a private hospital for a week with ample Medical Bills that where piling up.

Since then his medical aid has rejected a substantial amount of claims and are requiring co-payments on day surgeries and scan/ tests that are needed. Due to Brody's complex conditions the Surgeon that is being used is not on the medical Ais network and therefore they have a 15% co- payment on all surgeries performed.

Your donation will help his parents cover the cost of Baby Brody’s Hospital stays, Surgeries and treatments to provided Brody with the best possibly chance at living a normal life. 

Thank you so much to everyone who has been involved with the assistance of donations and support with this cause. We truly appreciate everything you have done and are doing.
