Hello friends and family,
My name is Kirsty Selesho and I am 26 years old, I come from South Africa in a location called Ivory Park. My family and I live in a small informal settlement. I have a lovely nephew named Lesego who was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2018 around June when he had his first seizure. The severe seizures let to him being diagnosed with ADHD and was recommended to take Ritalin, however we noticed that it wasn't good for him. We took him to a different doctor who prescribed Concerta for him.
He was in grade one when we had to stop him from going to school because the teachers were complaining about his behavior. He spend the whole of 2020 without going to school until we found a remedial school which he was to start this year(2021). However, the school called us to come get him on his first day of school because his condition was severe and he was being disruptive in class, that literally broke my heart, you could have seen how happy he was when he learned that he was going to school that morning.
Him getting removed from school actually compelled me to do more research so we can find him help. One day when I was browsing through the internet I came across a center called BrainAbility which provides Cognitive Testing and Training. We booked him an assessment with the center and received feedback from them with results of the assessment and we were advised to book him for a program urgently. The program is 6 months long and at a cost of R45000.
I humbly ask for your donation in getting Lesego the help that he needs. He is a wonderful beautiful kid who needs your help.
