Malachai

Diagnosed at 2.5 years old with Chiari Malformation, Malachai battles daily with controlling the seizures he started having at the time of his diagnosis.

Ambassador and superhero Malachai’s motto is “I might be little on the outside but I’m big on the inside.”

Diagnosed at 2.5 years old with Chiari Malformation, Malachai battles daily with controlling the seizures he started having at the time of his diagnosis. Malachai has also been diagnosed as failure to thrive meaning he struggles to grow and gain weight so requires feeding via tube.  He has had numerous surgeries and procedures.

Despite requiring a long list of ongoing treatments and medications to get through day to day, Malachi takes every day in his stride.

Malachai lives in Invercargill with his mum, three brothers and dog Pango.

Malachai loves books, research and adores the airforce. His dream is to be a Doctor and to find solutions to medical problems. He is ecstatic to be an ambassador for Cure Kids.
