Hearing a young woman's plea for help for her niece, Precious.
Daisy wrote to Good Morning Angels for some help for her 12-year old niece, Precious. By all accounts, this young girl is exactly that: larger than life in will, spirit and intellectual ability. However, physically she has to cope with Spina Bifida. Precious cannot walk and has to be carried - often by her grandparents. Her grandmother carries her on her back whenever Precious needs to go somewhere - like church. Precious is not going to school, because getting around is such a challenge.
My name is Daisy. I stay in the North West Province in Rustenburg with my grandparents. The reason I'm writing this email is because of my niece. Her name is Precious - she is 12-years old and disabled due to Spina Bifida. Precious is very, very talkative - even loud at times. She loves singing, taking charge of things - though there are other things she can't do, but she doesn't want to agree that she can't do it.
Precious is a very clever child, but now we can't send her to school because of her disability. My aunt tried many schools, but most of them say they don't have special people to look after her 24hrs and it hurts and frustrate her that she is still in day care because small kids will tease her that she still wears a nappy. She is still being put on the back of her mother when we go to church or when she wants to visit other family members. When the kids are taken out, she can't also go out with them to the mall or park. She has to be held all the time and she is very heavy. This makes her sad and she ends up crying, which brings distraught to us.
Precious can't feel her legs, feet, or arms and she is unable to move those parts of the body. She is unable to sit up straight - we put pillows between her legs and stomach just so she can sit. She has a chair that we normally use for her, but it's hurting her on the chest now that she is growing breasts. Precious has these terrible wounds on her knees and they are swelling and the doctors have treated them but they are not getting any better.
I'm asking for help from Good Morning Angels any kind of help that angels can assist us with, we will really appreciate it very much.
I have attached pictures of her.
May God bless you and keep you to continue to help others also out there, that need it.
