- Boy pushes cart selling lemonade to help him recover
- The third grader went through a life-threatening brain surgery
- He was suffering from a rare disorder known as Cavernous Hemangioma
A third grader has resorted to pushing a cart around hospital selling lemonade to help him recover from brain surgery that he recently went through.
The 8-year-old Ulises Ornelas from Garden City, Kansas, was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder known as Cavernous Hemangioma.
According to Johns Hopkins medicine, the disorder affects only one in every 100 to 200 people. It causes a mass of blood clots to form in the brain, thus affecting the muscle movement.
In July this year, Ornelas went through an eight-hour life-saving surgery to remove the blood clots from his brain.
“The surgery was scary. Removing a huge part of his skull was terrifying,” says Ornelas’ 28-year-old mum, Karina Ornelas , adding that going ahead with the surgery was a tough decision.
Pushing a makeshift lemonade cart on wheels, which he enjoys, is expected to help him regain his physical strength and fully recover from the surgery.
