Penny has had a series of medical check ups in 2012. Current medical conditions are listed as: Microcephalus; Internal Hydrocephalus, iron-insufficiency anemia, carious teeth with hypoplasia of the enamel (her teeth are rotting); Gothic palate, scoliosis and Cerebral Palsy – spastic quadric paresis with contractures of the large joints
Penny is 11 years old and weighs just 21 pounds. She’s been confined to a bed her entire life in an orphanage where she received little interaction or care. She is still fed from a bottle and cared for very much like a baby. She has never had the opportunity to reach her full potential.
We have several additional photos and a video clip from June 2012.
