“Prince is a charismatic young boy who has high hopes for his future,” a doctor at Ortho FOCUS, a Watsi medical partner, described. Prince hails from Ghana, where he lives with his parents and two siblings. He enjoys playing football and loves to read. He is currently a student in the sixth grade, and hopes to one day become a doctor.
Prince has dealt with scoliosis since birth, causing him difficulty while walking and performing daily tasks. The doctor reports: “His condition has worsened quite a bit, and it is progressively making life more difficult for him. We are hopeful that successful surgery will return him to an active and long-lasting life.”
Surgical intervention will reduce side effects from the deformity, alleviate pain, and prevent further bending of the spine. The doctors predict a positive outcome that will allow Prince to return to a healthy, active lifestyle. Let’s raise the $1500 needed to give Prince a better quality of life!
