“It has been a long journey for us,” shares David’s mother. “I am glad that my son will finally be operated on, and I look forward to his treatment and good recovery.”
David is a four-year-old boy from Ghana who is typically a very happy child; however, since falling ill, his spirits have dropped and he no longer smiles or laughs. David has been experiencing severe headaches and lack of stability when walking due to a brain tumor.
When David got sick, his parents rushed him to a local hospital in Ghana, where he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Unfortunately, the local hospital had no specialist surgeon to treat David, so he was referred to BethanyKids at Kijabe Hospital in Kenya, over 2,600 miles away. With the support of friends and family, David and his parents managed to get airline tickets to travel to Kijabe. Now, David’s father and mother need our support to help make this journey a success and ensure their son’s recovery.
“David is likely to suffer increased intracranial pressure, which may lead to brain damage and ultimately death if not treated soon,” explain our partners at African Mission Healthcare Foundation.
For $1,260 we can fund the craniotomy surgery that will stabilize David’s intracranial pressure and prevent any possibility of blindness or death. Let’s help David grow into a healthy, happy young man!
