Mia Booyens is a 3 year old girl that has been through so much already in her short life. In 2016 she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, Edward Syndrome, CHARGE Syndrome, Noonan Syndrome, Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and Coloboma of the iris. Mia also had open-heart surgery at Netcare Unitas Hospital in Centurion in 2017.
Though doctors did not see any chance of her being able to talk, crawl or walk; she beat the odds and today she is both talking and crawling.
She went for physio to see if it would help her to walk, and it helped a lot, but it still wasn’t enough to get Mia to walk. She then went on to the Netcare Jakaranda Hospital in Pretoria where the doctor determined that the tendons of her feet were too short. He also discovered that her hips were out on both sides by 50%.
Mia has to go in for procedures to lengthen both her feet`s tendons as well as a hip operation. After that, she again has to go back to physio so that she can learn to walk, and for assistance during the recovering process.
Please help us raise funds for Mia`s ongoing medical expenses, to give her a better quality life and a brighter future.
