Medical Helmet for Davi

Dear friends, our son Davi was born with a Metopic ridge in his skull and has a diagnosis of trigonocephaly. Thankfully he is able to have the surgery on the NHS which will mean he is able to keep his eyesight and have no effect on his cognitive function and memory. Unfortunately the he requires 3 specialised helmet in the first year post surgery to protect the bones in his head and shape his skull as he grows. The cost of this is not covered by the NHS and we are reaching out to our friend and family and anyone that can help to raise funds towards this post operative treatment. We appreciate your support at this difficult time and anything you can spare whatsoever will go a long way in helping us to provide these for him.  Many Thanks, Joaquim and Marta
UPDATE: Davi has received the first 2 helmets and is growing better than expected and as a result will need 2 more helmets. Ordinarily 1 helmet will last a child with this condition 6 months, but at 8 months, he is now already moving to his 3rd helmet. We appreciate any help and the overwhelming support we have received from the community so far.  God bless.
