A seven-month-old baby boy diagnosed with congenital hydrocephalus whose parents sought financial assistance for his surgery on Class Media Group’s Accra100.5FM and Number1FM, 105.3, has passed away.
Little Simon Mawuena Dzani was diagnosed with the health condition when he was just two months old and doctors at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital said the child could be saved only through surgery estimated to cost GHS5,643.
Through the cherished listeners of Accra100.5FM and Number1FM, the Class Media Group raised the amount for the surgery but the child died on Saturday, 6 October 2018 at Dobro in the Greater Accra Region.
Meanwhile, an amount of GHS8,000 raised by Number1 FM and GHS2,000 raised by Accra FM, through their listeners before little Dzani’s death, have been presented to his parents.
Congenital hydrocephalus comes about when a child is born with an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. CSF is a clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord.
