James is a young student from Kenya. He is in seventh grade and lives with his family.
James was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, James has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
James will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on May 21. AMHF is requesting $459 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“We are pleading for support to help James. We were told of the possible complications and we would not imagine him unable to father his own children in the future, yet we are in a very difficult financial situation,” says his sister.
