Underpants for Deon

Underpants for Deon

Personal message

Good day,

My Son Deon is almost 5 years old and the happiest, cleverest and most loveable boy running around. And all he wants for his 5th birthday is “UNDERPANTS”

Here is his story:

Deon was born with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele. Although Dr’s said he won’t be able to walk and have a normal life, he proved them all wrong, after 3 surgeries just after birth and intense physiotherapy he was able to stand up and walk by the age of 2 and a half. He will turn 5 in March and with the naked eye you won’t see that there is anything wrong with him, he looks like a happy normal bright boy. But underneath his pants, there is a nappy. A nappy that prevents him for going to a normal school next year.

Incontinence is one of the complications of Deon’s condition. His nerves that supply the bladder and bowels don't work properly. This is because the nerves that supply his bowel and bladder come from the lowest level of the spinal cord.

We did receive some great news from his Incontinence specialist , the sphincter of his bladder is close, therefor no operation is needed as he will be able to urinate with the help of a catheter, and his bowels with intense therapy, which unfortunately comes with a price the medical aid doesn’t want to pay for.


This boy is such an angel and so determined to wear underpants for his 5th birthday, and to go to his big brothers school next year, that he already started inserting the catheter by himself every time he needs to go to the loo, as he knows mommy won’t be able to help once his in big school.

Monies raised will be used for specialist visits, physiotherapy and bowel incontinence therapy he will need, medical equipment and his chronic medication he needs to take every day to help relax his bladder.

Please open your hearts and help Deon to be the carefree boy that runs around and plays with his friends without the embarrassment of a nappy. He proofed all the doctors wrong and has a normal life except for one more hurdle which the medical aid does not want to help with. From the bottom of our hearts we thank all our friends and family for helping Deon on this journey.
