Baby Phetogo was born with a rare birth defect called Congenital Pseudathrosis of the Tibia. He is currently 1 year and 7months old and unable to walk. We have consulted numerous top pediatric surgeons in the country and their treatment method has only yielded 40% success rate at the initial reconstructive surgery and has a 75% chances of refracturing. Failed surgeries will ultimately result in amputation of his leg.
We have however found Dr Paley in the USA, Florida who has extensively worked on this condition for 28 years and his treatment method has yielded 100% success rate with 0% of refracturing from 2007 to date.
Phetogo's treatment will cost $100 000 (over R1.5million) and I am pleading with everyone to help raise funds to save my son's leg and have him walk like the rest of us. Any amount donated will go a long way.
