Meet Anthony !

Meet Anthony 
Isn't he precious ! 
Anthony and I in front of his slum home in Marururi 
Anthony at the ripe old age of 10 has spent his life in a wheelchair. Having recently received a diagnosis of right hip dislocations with severe abduction and hemiplegic cerebral palsy and weakness deformity. Normally these conditions would been treated in infancy and the child would go on to having a somewhat normal life, but when you are born in a slum access to proper medical care is just not available. With the diagnosis comes hope, the treatment plan. Hip surgery , physical and occupational therapy. All Anthony and his family needs to make this happen 900.00  I know right, so little to make such a big difference in the life of one child and one family.

Navigating through a slum is hard enough ,but in a wheelchair it's next to impossible to get anywhere on his own.

Would you consider making a donation even a small one. Just 5.00 will help get Anthony out of that wheelchair and onto a new life. A quality of life he has never had before. .

Anthony ALWAYS has a smile on his face !
