Enderson Zeledón is 9 years old.
When Enderson was born, he experienced neonatal asphyxiation, a birth injury that causes cerebral palsy. His mom noticed that he couldn’t not move his lower limbs, support his neck, or eat or swallow like a healthy child and he received the diagnosis at about one year old. When he was five, he began to stammer some but he could not talk or walk. His movement was limited and he could not say discernible words prior to his time at the Mercy Center.
Enderson is part of the first group of Mercy Kids - he’s been part of the center since April 2018. Since coming to the center, Enderson has improved his articular stiffness (his joints have improved range of motion!) and fine motor skills. He has started saying some words and his intellectual abilities have developed greatly.
His birthday is January 9!
$90 a month covers the full cost for Enderson to receive weekly therapy and care at the Mercy Center. Those funds cover the salaries of our therapists, the cost of transporting Enderson to and from the center, the food Enderson eats at the center, and materials we need to provide his therapy!
