Nancy is a girl from Kenya. She is an only child. Three months ago, Nancy began complaining of persistent headaches and weakness in her left limbs. At school, her teachers noticed a decline in her performance. Her vision became blurry, and her left ear developed an ache. She could no longer walk without support and even lost her appetite.
Her young mother was very worried and took her to a referral hospital, where a CT scan was performed. Nancy was diagnosed with a brain tumor. If not treated, Nancy at risk of paralysis, persistent headaches, or brain damage.
Fortunately, she is scheduled to undergo a craniotomy to treat the tumor on November 21. Her family needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure.
“I really look forward to seeing my daughter functioning well once more,” says Nancy’s mother.
