Nicola and her son Badrick live in St. Ann, Jamaica. Badrick was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms, also known as West syndrome. This condition causes a series of seizures and spasms that last only a few seconds but can happen one right after the other.
Badrick also has developmental delays and cerebral palsy. He can’t walk. If he needs to eat, his mom needs to feed him.
Nicola and Badrick live a nearly two-hour drive from Kingston—often the only place where therapy services are available for differently-abled children in the country. Because of the distance, Badrick cannot get therapy. Let’s help kids like Badrick.
