Teemu joined Watsi on December 24th, 2014. 76 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Teemu's most recent donation traveled 4,300 miles to support Grace, a student from Kenya, to remove a life-threatening tumor.
Teemu has funded healthcare for 1 patient in 1 country.
"I would like to be like other children." says Grace, a nine-year-old Kenyan student who lives with her mother and two siblings in the outskirts of Nairobi. Grace has a brain tumor that has been causing persistent seizures, severe headaches, and affecting her walking. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, reports, "Grace suffers from increased intracranial pressure, which may lead to brain damage and loss of sight if surgery is not done. The surgery will save Grace's life and she will be able to continue with her education." Grace adds, "I hope I'll get well soon, so that I can study without interruption." Watsi community, let's work together to raise the $1260 needed for a craniotomy to remove the seizure and headache-inducing tumor, and help Grace get back to school!
