Jeff did not undergo his planned hip surgery.

Our medical partner just reached out to let us know that Jeff’s parents have decided to not move forward with Jeff’s hip surgery at this time. Jeff has hydrocephalus and spina bifida with weak knee extension and clubfoot. Due to his health conditions, Jeff had persistent elevated white blood cells (17-22) CRP 5.6. Doctors discussed his levels with Jeff’s parents and they decided that the benefits of the open reduction of his right hip do not outweigh the risk of major surgery for him at this point.

Meet Jeff a one-year-old boy from Kiambu County in Kenya. He is a jovial and friendly boy, the only child of Shadrack and Catherine, a young couple. His father operates a Boda Boda taxi along the village, while his mother is a housewife.

Jeff was born through a c-section at Kenyatta National Hospital and was discovered to have multiple birth deformities including spina bifida, hydrocephalus, clubfoot, and a hip condition. He stayed in the hospital for more than 2 months in the nursery and where the spina bifida and hydrocephalus conditions were treated.

He has undergone hip surgery at Watsi Medical Partner care center CURE Hospital, where an x-ray reflected that he has healed. He is now scheduled to undergo a Rt hip open reduction and pelvic osteotomy treatment which will enhance his ability to stand and later walk like other children. He will later undergo surgery to correct his clubfoot.

His family is a young couple who recently got married, they cannot afford the estimated bill at the hospital and thus requested for help.

“The only challenge we have is the hospital bill. We are pleading for help so that our son can walk like other children,” Shadrack and Catherine, Jeff’s parents pleaded.
