Henglin is a 15-month-old boy with one older brother who is five years old. Henglin’s father works for a local company, while his mother cares for him and his brother at home. Henglin already enjoys playing with his toys and his brother.
Henglin was born with polydactyly of both feet. This condition causes him to have an extra toe on each foot. As a result, he cannot wear normal shoes and his parents worry about the appearance of their son’s feet.
Fortunately, on May 19th, surgeons will perform a polydactyly repair procedure to remove the extra digit on each of Henglin’s feet. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $256 to fund this procedure. After surgery, the extra toe on each foot will be removed and he will be more comfortable walking around and playing as he grows.
Henglin’s parents shared, “We hope the surgery goes well and that our son can grow up normally without problems.”
