Sometimes people are born with some really crazy physical birth defects, but this kid’s head crack has to be one of the most extreme we’ve ever come across on MyCityByNight. This particular defect belongs to a super sweet 6-year-old lad called Pheaktra Pov. He was born with the defect and doctors still haven’t been able to work out what to do to stop the crack from expanding even more and exposing his brain.
Here’s what Pheaktra’s grandmother Thorn Hong had to say:
My daughter checked when she was three-months pregnant if anything was wrong and the doctors said everything was fine.
But at seven months they said there was a serious problem but it was too late to do anything.
Pheaktra was born with a crack in his head and it’s getting bigger all the time. I can put my hand inside the middle, it is very big.
Pheaktra’s father left before he was born so it’s just me and my daughter who take care of him. Doctors do not know what has caused this and they said there is nothing they can do.
Until he was five years old it seemed like there was water inside his head and it was swelling and getting bigger.
The children’s hospital give us some medicine but it is just to make Pheaktra feel better.
We pray everyday for somebody in the world that knows how to fix this.
Hopefully with this post going viral, some bright doctor out there will be able to figure this one out and jump in to help! Guess it just proves that we all need to stop taking things for granted (cue the tears).
