Joshua Naicker from Midrand in Jo­han­nes­burg is now 22 weeks old. He was born at only 33 weeks with what’s com­monly known as wa­ter on the brain, a con­di­tion called hy­dro­cephalus. He’s sub­se­quently de­vel­oped a num­ber of se­ri­ous con­di­tions in­clud­ing cere­bral palsy, epilepsy and more. He’s had five op­er­a­tions al­ready, three of them brain surgery.
