A schoolboy who lived with his head hanging to one side is finally able to see the world ‘straight’ after life-changing surgery. Mahendra Ahirwar, 13, has a rare condition that made his neck muscles so weak his head hung ata 180-degree angle.
His crocked neck meant Mahendra was restricted to just sitting as he was unable to stand or walk and needed help to eat and go to the toilet .
But Mahendra’s life has been transformed thanks to a stranger, mother-of-two Julie Jones living 4,000 miles away in Liverpool who read his story and raised £12,000 for an operation to straighten his neck.
Now the Mahendra can do the same things other boys his age can – like go to school.
