“All I desire is to have treatment and be able to report back to school,” shares Daniel, a 16-year-old boy who lives with his parents and two younger siblings in Kenya.

“Daniel has a mass that has formed on his brain due to fibrous dysplasia; a disease that destroys and replaces normal bone with fibrous bone tissue,” explains our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation.

Daniel is the oldest child in his family. His father is a casual at a flower farm, while his mother is a stay-at-home mom. Daniel started complaining of headaches eight months ago and after several visits to the hospital, doctors discovered the mass in his brain.

“If the surgery is not done, he is likely to suffer brain damage or premature death due to the increased intra-cranial pressure caused by the mass.”

$1,260 will cover the cost of the surgery that will remove the mass and save Daniel’s life. Let’s help him out and make his dream of returning to school come true!
