Success! David from Guatemala raised $895 to get healthy.

  • $895 raised, $0 to go
Fully funded
David's treatment was fully funded on August 23, 2012.

David is a 1-year-old boy from Guatemala who was born with a rare birth defect that will severely limit his quality of life if it’s not corrected. For his first year of life, David’s stool has been leaving his body through his abdomen, where doctors redirected his bowel at birth because he was born without an anus. This has resulted in multiple infections, persistent dehydration, and malnourishment.

The doctors in Guatemala can perform surgery on David to allow him to function normally, but we need to raise $895 to pay for it! David’s father recently died from an aggressive cancer and his mother cannot afford to pay for David’s medical care. Let’s come together and get David the money he needs to have this surgery!
