Cesar is a 12-year-old boy from Guatemala with a tumor called a craniopharyngioma in his brain. Craniopharyngiomas cause headaches, nausea, and difficulty with balance because of increased pressure on the brain, and blurred vision because of damage to the optic nerve. Cesar’s tumor can be removed through surgery and he could go on to live a healthy life, but his family cannot afford the medical care he needs.
Cesar and his family are survivors of a severe mudslide from a tropical storm that devastated their community. They are struggling to get back on their feet and return to normal life. Let’s help them overcome these obstacles by making sure Cesar gets the medical treatment he needs.
