Lincoln Shirong King is our first grandchild. He was born with microcephaly and ACC. Your donation in any amount will help pay for out of pocket cost and therapy that is not paid for by his insurance. Thank you for helping this family in a hard unforseen situation.
Lincoln was born on November 19, 2014 with a brain abnormality called Agenisis of the Corpus Callosum and microcephaly. ACC is s congenital disorder where the band of white matter connecting the two hemispheres in the brain, fails to develop normally. In short, he has some major developmental delays with his fine and gross motor skills. Microcephaly is where the head growth either stops or slows due to the brain. Since 4 months old his head circumference has been at a -1%. The symptoms are developmental delays, seizures etc. He has spent so much time in and out of the hospital & doctors offices since he's been born, through all the tests we have discovered that Lincoln will need some services that are unfortunately not covered by his insurance. These are not the milestones you envision as a first time parent, the most difficult part is that there is no cure only therapy. Lincoln has had lots of evaluations and will be needing PT/OT and vision therapy as well as suggested swimming and music therapy. A giant THANK YOU to all able to contribute. The memories of him eventually overcoming huge hurdles will forever be embedded in our hearts.http://legendrace.com/charities/
