When Edwin was only 1 week old, he came down with Malaria. The family took him to the hospital where a doctor told them to take him back home and just use African Traditional Medicine. He eventually improved and got better, but as he grew, the family noticed other things about him that concerned them, so they took him back to the hospital where the doctors noticed that he was not talking. Upon examination they saw that he was tongue-tied, so they performed an operation to correct the problem, however, Edwin is still unable to speak. Champions Club is currently working with him to teach him to write.
