Life would probably be easier for three-year-old Kayden Bell if doctors could determine a diagnosis for him. So far, he’s been diagnosed with microcephaly, global developmental delay, hypomyelination and dystonia with dystonic spasms. Doctors have ruled out cerebral palsy.
The end result is Kayden cannot walk or talk, and has the mental and physical ability of a six-month-old.
Kayden’s mother, Gemma Bell, is the primary caregiver to her son. The North Belfast, Northern Ireland, woman is raising money to buy an appropriate chair to help make Kayden’s life more comfortable. She states the National Health Service does not cover that particular medical equipment, and the occupational therapy chair that has been provided does not meet his particular needs. The chair Bell has in mind would support his head and prevent him from choking when he’s fed.
