Can You Help Baby Nelson Tabora?

On Wednesday night, we showed you the touching story of baby Nelson Tabora in Bella Vista. The twenty-three-month-old baby is suffering from a condition called Hydrocephalus where cerebrospinal fluid is building up in his head. The condition has caused his head to grow rapidly and is affecting his health. The parents can’t afford to do a second surgery and fears that he may die soon if he doesn’t get the help he needs. Since we aired the story – it has garnered over ninety-thousand views and there has been an outpouring of verbal commitment to help baby Nelson. The family was able to open a bank account today with Atlantic Bank in the child’s name: Nelson Javier Tabora.  That is the only account being used to collect funds to help the baby with medical expenses. One viewer has secured an appointment for baby Nelson to see a specialist in Belize City for an evaluation. We’ll tell you how that goes. In case you missed the story and want to know just how much the toddler needs your help, here’s more from his mom about the challenges raising her son with hydrocephalus.

“There are times when he is doing well and he’s lively. Other times he gets very sick with cold, cough and at times when his body is not feeling well. As you know, a child who doesn’t talk will fuss and cry. So, I have learned to understand him like how I am always up and down with him everywhere. I try to find the medication he needs. Other times I take him to Dangriga and they give me the prescription and so I have to find how to buy it. At times I don’t have how to buy the medication he needs because sometimes I just don’t have the money.”

 

The staff of Hopkins Bay and good Samaritan Francis Wagner handed over a cheque of one thousand dollars to the family in Bella Vista earlier today. The resort’s staff members say they were touched by the story and so they made the contribution to try and help save the baby’s life. Once again, if you want to deposit donations you can do so at the Atlantic Bank account number 2-1-1-8-4-7-9-3-8.
