Simon is a boy from Tanzania. He has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Simon has been experiencing an increasing head circumference. Without treatment, Simon will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $728 to cover the cost of surgery for Simon that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on July 22 and will drain the excess fluid from Simon’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Simon will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
Simon’s mother says, “Please help our so. We are unable to afford his treatment cost. We would love to see our son healed. Please help.”
