Fundraising for Noah Smit – Mixed Cerebral Palsy

Noah`s story:

Noah Smit is a 7-year-old boy from De Doorns in the Western Cape who was diagnosed with mixed cerebral palsy – dystonic & spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. At the young age of 1 and a half years, the Neurologist said he would probably need an electronic device to communicate, and that he won`t be able to walk or talk.

Noah communicates through sounds, babbling and pointing. He can say a few words like car, cat, dad, and grandpa – but he still can not sit, stand or walk. Noah is a bright young boy and there is nothing wrong with his comprehension, but he is trapped in a spastic body with a mind of its own.

He needs daily therapy, but only receives therapy once or twice a month, as this is all that the family can afford at the moment. They are hoping to take him to America or Greece for SPML – Selective Percutaneous Myofascial Lengthening – a type of minimally invasive surgery utilized to relieve tension from muscle spasticity; used to treat children who have CP. This treatment is not a miracle, but can be life-changing for him as this will reduce the spasticity, possibly give his body time to learn how to sit or crawl or walk – and will allow time for the brain to rewire.

Mom doesn’t have to look after him full-time anymore as Noah spends half-day in a Special Needs Center in Worcester. Dad still works full-time to provide for the family.

Please open your heart to Noah and his family by supporting our fundraiser. All proceeds from the “Hope for Noah Bracelets” and the “Strength through Faith Bracelets” are donated towards his ongoing medical care and expenses where needed. Together we can make a difference in Noah`s life and give him a chance at a brighter future.

Alternatively, please consider a donation. Any and all donations welcome. REF: Noah Smit.
