MICRO MIRACLE FOUNDATION
Marco Luiz Pinheiro was born on the 13th March 2013, full term, after a very easy and uneventful pregnancy. He developed well for the first few months of life, however by 4 months we started to be a little concerned that he was not that engaging and interactive both visually and physically. After having his vision and hearing tested, we were referred to a Paediatric Neurologist, Dr Dorcas Wilson (An angel on earth), and at 7 months our little boy was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms aka West Syndrome. This form of infantile epilepsy affects both their physical and cognitive development. Marco’s epilepsy was finally controlled after months of hospital visits and Drs appointments. It has been a long road, but we will never give up on our little man, until he has achieved his full potential. Marco is 3 ½ years old, and cannot walk or talk yet, but God willing he will one day be able to achieve these very big milestones.
