DJ Heavy K knows it takes more than unconditional love to raise a child, especially a child with cerebral palsy. The artist is now trying to raise money that will go towards the proper care of his 3-year-old son.
Taking care of a child with special needs takes a lot of love and patience. Sadly, it also takes a lot of money.
DJ Heavy K learned this the hard way - he has a 3-year-old little boy with his wife Ntombi, and the boy has cerebral palsy.
SowetanLIVE reports that the musician wants to raise R2 million in order to take care of his son properly.
For Heavy K, his biggest motivation in life is his two sons.
Being a dad has been and still is amazing. It was unfortunate that our first born did not get enough oxygen when he was born, which damaged his brain and affected his ability to move. That part is challenging, but at the same time I believe that God doesn't make a mistake. My son is not a burden. With him, God is testing my trust in him.
He revealed that when he found out about his boy's condition, he knew he would have to do the very best he can so he can afford to take care of him.
As a father to a special child, it is all in my hands. There are a lot of potential treatments that can be done to help him be the best version of himself. Even if he never gets to be 100%, I want to do so much for him so he can have the best life possible.
The DJ is also working on losing weight. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that he wants to be a better musician and that means he'll have to shed some pounds.
His weight loss will certainly aid in making him an even better dad.
