Boy, age 1.5
Neonatal, cerebral schemia; hydrocephalus; ventriculoperitoneal shunt
Listed: March 2017
Anthony is an adorable, sweet 1 year old! Anthony has a lack of development physically and neurologically. In late 2015, a ventriculoperiteneal shunt was placed and he has been free of seizures since then. He cannot sit upright by himself and does not talk, but responds to sound. Anthony is tube fed due to lack of suck reflex. He does not react well to teasing or tactile stimulation by smiling but by irritation and crying.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.
