The 3 Foundation on Friday, January 13, 2023, made a third donation to Ridge Hospital to cover the surgical bill for facial reconstructive surgery in respect of six-month-old Michael Egle, also referred to as “Baby Mike”. Baby Mike who has already undergone 2 successful surgeries to remove excess fluid from his head suffers from Hydrocephalus – a condition that leads to an accumulation of excess Cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) inside his brain.
This third tranche of donations brings the total payment made to the hospital for baby Mike’s treatment to GHS 23,000.00. 3 Foundation also made a separate cash donation of GHS 1,000 to Baby Mike’s mother to support his upkeep
The donation was received by the pediatric surgical team at the Greater Accra Regional hospital led by Neurosurgeon Dr. Alhassan Dasana Andani. In August 2022, baby Mike’s condition was aired on TV3 and public donations were solicited for his treatment at Ridge Hospital. Public response to the appeal enabled 3 Foundation to raise the amount for Baby Mike’s treatment.
Earlier procedures performed on Tuesday, September 20, and October 25, 2022, respectively, have resulted in the extraction and draining of the accumulated Cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF), reducing the mass and physical appearance of Baby Mike’s head.
In addition, there has been a gradual improvement in the child’s neuro-cognitive development.
This third procedure scheduled for the second week in February 2023, will to a large extent repair his facial features.
3 foundation is passionately appealing to the public to continue supporting Baby Mike’s Journey towards his full recovery as doctors confirm more procedures are required for his full recovery
