Tragedy strikes for mom with cerebral palsy Emmanuel

Tragedy strikes for mom with cerebral palsy Emmanuel

Personal message

We have some very tragic sad news. Most of you will know and remember precious Emmanuel the little boy we have been assisting since 2015 with severe cerebral palsy.

Well, his amazing mom Lea has always wanted to have another baby. She finally fell pregnant and was due to give birth to a baby girl this week. She went to the hospital with labour pains on the weekend. She was only 1cm dilated for the entire day. Negligently the doctors discharged her. Despite knowing her history with Emmanuel who got cerebral palsy due to a 44-daylabour and forceps used eventually to get him out.

She returned at midnight on Monday in terrible pain. She cried. She begged them to help her and again explained that her son has cerebral palsy due to a too long labour. She was told to keep quiet.

They eventually did a cesarean section on Tuesday morning. But sadly the precious little baby girl was not breathing. It was too late. She did not make it ???????? Now poor Lea is being discharged today to return home empty-handed and with a terrible wound from the c section.

We are all completely devastated. And are going to look into taking this matter further for investigation as we truly believe negligence resulted in the death of this innocent little baby girl.

What we would like to do is make Emmanuels 8th birthday which is on the 9th December extra special for both him and his mom. Especially after this terrible tragedy.

Money raised will be used to throw Emmanuel a lovely party as well as support him and Lea while she recovers from her traumatic experience and death of her baby girl. 

Please open your hearts and help us give them a special day ???? we will purchase new clothes for him from any donations given.
