“Lieschè van Wyk was born on the 1st of February 2018, after her mother was in labour for 38 hours. She was given oxygen immediately and transferred to NICU. Shortly after birth she started having epileptic seizures and at the age of 6 months she was diagnosed with “Spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and microcephaly”.
She must go for botox injections every 4 months to relieve her muscles and help with the spasticity. She goes to weekly physio, occupational and speech therapy, unfortunately hydro & chiro had to be stopped due to lack of funding. Lieschè is non-verbal and had to get a feeding tube (mickey) shortly after birth, she is still in the process of learning how to eat and swallow soft puree foods.
Lieschè is the light of our lives, always friendly and the most beautiful smile. She is such an inspiration to everyone that knows her, she has touched so many lives through her determination and fighting spirit. She works very hard with each therapy session. “
Lieschè needs to get AFO’s and a buggy in 2021, the medical aid does not cover her therapy for the full year, and it is desperately needed. We as parents want to do everything possible to give her the best quality of life and to assist her in making life as comfortable as possible.”
By supporting our fundraising initiative you can help to raise funds for her ongoing medical care and expenses. Together we can change the world, one bracelet at a time!
