Have you ever wondered what happened to that young Guyanese mother whose baby was born with a brain defect?
It seems more than 12 months later. and Felicia Melvin mother of young baby boy, Emannie who was born on October 8 with a rare brain defect; part of his brain protrudes his skull, STILL AWAITS SURGERY.
I came across an article published in the Guyana Times on September 2, 2015 New form of hardship being faced by brave mother. I must say Guyana Times have kept this story in the limelight on a regular basis over the past year.
Several organizations including mycaribbeanscoop.com brought the young Guyanese mother story to the public. The first time the story was carried on this site, we included the video below which showed the young Guyanese mother Felicia Melvin pleading for help.
As you read the various headlines about this story…
- Newborn baby with exposed brain-Oct 2014
- Baby needs help for life-saving surgery-Oct 2014
- Baby with exposed brain closer to surgery-Dec 2014
- Baby with exposed brain still awaiting surgery-July 2015
- New form of hardship being faced by brave mother-Sept 2015
Imagine what this young Guyanese mother is going through as hopelessness turns to hope and then back to waiting for something to be done, at least to prolong the life of her child. I am sure any parent would be desperate having to live through this ordeal.
I hope Emannie Melvin, who at just over 1 year old and still alive even though doctors in Guyana told the mother that he wouldn’t live this long, gets some help.

There is also a GoFundme page that was set-up a year ago to help fund a surgery for Emannie. Please note that we are not affiliated to this page, we are simply providing a link below.
