Megan is a baby from Kenya. Her mother named her after Meghan Markle.
Megan has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. Without treatment, Megan will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the cost of surgery for Megan that will treat her hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 28 and will drain the excess fluid from Megan’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Megan will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl.
