Remember brave little Janrick? He needs your help again.
We need to raise $2636 for an emergency surgery.
Janrick was born with spina bifida - a myelomenigocele* - and is 15 months old. Maya's Hope funded surgeries for him in September to repair his myelomeningocele and insert a shunt for his hydrocephalus. He has recovered well from these surgeries! His mother contacted us recently as she had noticed a painful swelling in Janrick's groin. We quickly organized for Janrick to be assessed. The doctors found he has an inguinal hernia and needs surgery ASAP. Janrick's parents lost their income due to the pandemic and cannot afford this surgery. Can you help little Janrick again? *A myelomeningocele is a severe form of spina bifida in which the spinal cord and nerves develop outside of the body and are contained in a fluid-filled sac that is visible outside of the back area. These babies typically have weakness and loss of sensation below the sac.
