DeAngelo Griggs, son of Irish Bender, MC2
DeAngelo Griggs is the 8 year old disabled son of single mom, Irish Bender, who is the Office Manager of the Atlanta division of MC2. DeAngelo was born with hydrocephalus, a condition where fluid accumulates on the brain and causes brain damage. He is unable to speak or walk and must eat by a G-tube. DeAngelo has 9 doctors that he sees several times a year to keep him healthy. He also has a VP shunt to help drain fluid from his brain. The years of surgeries (presently he has had 7 shunt revisions), the medical expenses and the need for additional support in the way of medical supplies, medical equipment, physical therapy and special needs daycare has taken its toll. Still Irish does her best to provide for DeAngelo and would gladly welcome any support she can get.
