Marius Ferreira was born on 28 weeks, weighing 1.1kg. He became really sick 2 weeks after his birth, so bad that the doctors said he won’t make it. But God had a purpose and he pulled through .
Throughout the years, he’s been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Microcephaly, Epilepsy, and he is tube-fed. He had broken both his legs and an arm due to poor bone density and epileptic fits. He is quite often admitted to hospital, due to aspirations or infections.
Marius has special needs, he uses a special formulated feed, and can’t eat per mouth. He has a list of Specialists (Neurologist, Orthopedic surgeon, Pediatrician, ENT specialist, Paediatric Surgeon and a Gastroenterologist) who he needs to see twice a year, sometimes more. He also needs to see a Speech Therapist and an Occupational Therapist every month.
His monthly expenses are quite high and they constantly need to raise funds for him, due to his medical expenses and bills. He has chronic medicine and also a handful of vitamins and supplements that he needs to take.
Marius is a tough little fighter, has been through so much, but he always has a smile on his sweet little face. He is now a 7 year old happy boy, even with his daily challenges.
