PCF reaching out into the community

She is Janeth, 15 years old.  When her mother was 13 years old, Janeth was born with myelomeningocele, a backbone and spinal cord defect (the most serious form of spina bifida), causing a permanent hemiplegia or paralysis on one side of her body. She had never been evaluated or treated in the past, causing multiple complications due to her condition.

Janeth1PCF is currently working to improve her well-being, providing medical care and treatment, getting her a proper size wheelchair, obtaining her birth certificate, referring her to a physical rehabilitation center to begin physical therapy, as well as supporting her whole family.

Here she is, as always smiling, holding a drawing she made.
