Alfred underwent brain surgery.

Alfred’s surgery was performed in our medical partner’s facility and was successful. He was discharged and has been scheduled for clinical visits. This surgery reduced his chances of further tumor growth, which might have resulted in total vision loss or increased intracranial pressure.

Alfred says, “I am thankful to God for the help…I am hopeful that soon I will regain my former lifestyle, that of a vibrant man.”

Alfred is a 30-year-old father of one from Kenya who loves discussing politics and watching the news when he is well. While his wife is a farm laborer, Alfred has been unable to work for the past year due to his condition.

Since June 2015, Alfred has been suffering symptoms of a brain tumor. While he was first diagnosed with epilepsy, MRI test results received towards the end of 2016 indicated that Alfred has a brain tumor. In April 2017, Alfred became paralyzed on his left side. The wait for surgery at his provincial hospital was too long, so Alfred was referred to our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kijabe Hospital, for a craniotomy.

Alfred complains of loss of balance and vision, painful head migraines, and altered speech. If not treated, the brain tumor might increase in size and result in brain damage or death. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,495 to fund Alfred’s brain surgery, which is scheduled to take place on June 23.

Alfred says, “I wish to be treated and work hard for my family. I want my child to read and excel in future.”
