Brayden Wiebosch, was born a healthy and happy boy on the 7th of March 2018, but his life changed drastically on the 8th of June 2018. At a mere 3 months old, every parent’s worst nightmare occurred when Brayden was feeding on his bottled milk and choked, causing him to have a seizure. Kaylee and Harry, his mother and father, had to resuscitate him while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. Brayden was admitted to Wilgeheuwel Hospital, the closest hospital to where they live.
Brayden remained at Wilgeheuwel Hospital for 3 months to be stabilised, undergoing numerous medical procedures. One of which was an induced coma to help relieve the blood pressure surrounding his brain. A craniotomy was then performed.
Once stabilised, Brayden was released to The Almond Tree, who discovered that he may have pneumonia; he was admitted to Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Hospital (old Joburg Gen Hospital) where he stayed for two weeks.
Now 2 years old, Brayden has to feed through a PEG (a feeding tube inserted into his stomach) and has been diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy. Knowing that they do not have medical aid, Kaylee and Harry, are strung up to find funds to pay for Wilgeheuwel’s fees. They have managed to pay some, but not all of the fees.
Brayden’s fight is not over, he will need lots of physio, O.T and speech therapy. Funds are needed for outstanding medical bills at Wilgeheuwel Hospital, as well as his continuous physio and O.T that he will have to endure for the rest of his life.
Supporting Arms of Mercy`s bracelet initiative is way to get involved and make a positive difference in Brayden`s life. Together we can change his world, once bracelet at a time!
