Arthur is almost 8 years old. He and his twin sister were born prematurely at 29 weeks. Shortly after birth he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (spastic tetraparesis) and epilepsy. He is one of the amazing children in our program and Maya's Hope supplies him with formula, emergency and regular medication.
For several years Arthur has had episodes of uncontrolled muscle spasms (dystonia). These episodes have recently become worse and now last for hours each day.
Arthur urgently needs to attend a course of assessment and treatment for his dystonia at a research center in a neighbouring region. He is exhausted and in pain from these episodes. It is breaking his mothers heart to see her son suffering.
US$575 will cover the cost of this course of treatment and also the travel costs for the family.
