Mikayla Brown was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when she was 9 months old. She is unable to talk, sit, crawl or walk; unable to do anything for herself. When she was diagnosed, mom had to leave her job in order to take care of her. Mikayla has four other siblings and her dad is the only breadwinner in the house.
She attends half-day at a school for children with special needs and has made a lot of progress since she started, and due to the therapy she receives. These therapies include Neurogenesis as well as ongoing Oxygen therapy which was sponsored.
Mikayla has epilepsy and has to go for regular check-ups at a Government hospital where they provide her with medication because there is no medical aid. She also has Cortical Visual Impairment, but her vision has improved because of the Oxygen therapy.
Mikayla and her family depend on sponsors and fundraising to be able to provide for her schooling and ongoing therapy, Chiropractor sessions, as well as additional equipment when needed. The are trying every possible way to assist Mikayla reach her full potential, together we can change her world, one bracelet at a time.
“When you start each day with a grateful heart, light illuminates from within like a ray of sunshine.”
