This is 2 1/2 year of Juan Jose. While there is no specific diagnosis for him, his symptoms are similar to cerebral palsy.
Julio from Calidad Ortopedica in Cuenca fashioned a special chair for Juan Jose to keep his spine and hips in a correct position when he sits to eat, watch tv or have his therapy. Julio also fashioned special shoes and an arm brace to prevent foot and arm contractions.
We want to thank Carolina Donoso of Cinterandes for bringing this precious child and his needs to the attention of HKIE. And of course a thank you to all our supporters who make life changing gifts possible.
Isn't he such a cutie! Love his smile!
