Johnson is a child from Tanzania. He loves playing and helping his mother with chores. Johnson has one sibling, who he loves dearly. His parents are separated.
Since he was a few months old, Johnson has been experiencing difficulty swallowing and breathing. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Johnson’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Johnson, which is scheduled to take place on December 28. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Johnson of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Johnson’s mother says, “I am so glad that my son will be able to breath better. Thank you so much for helping us with treatment.”
