Tolulope Malomo – We celebrate you and all that you represent and all that represents you.
Our Cover Smile for this edition- Tolulope Malomo is a 10years old handsome boy with special needs; he lives with Cerebral Palsy which is in a group of special needs that can involve the nervous system functions such as movement, learning, hearing, seeing and thinking caused by damage to the brain before, during or soon after birth.
In summary, Tolulope’s mum said apart from the clawed feet he had as a baby, she did not notice anything else until much later when his crying was not quite right and then he started having seizures which is thankfully under control now. He is as cheeky like most children are, getting distracted when completing his home work et el; he however has challenges with brushing himself due to his limited motor skills, but he gets help from mum and dad. His awesome brother Bolu loves and supports his brother as best as he can as does mum and dad.
We spotlight Tolulope and the challenges him and his parents are confronted with everyday of their lives through no choice of theirs and there are many families out there faced with these challenges as well. Please, show some compassion and support to people and family members of special needs individuals.
