Branton underwent brain surgery.

Branton had a very successful surgery to excise the tumor. The surgery has prevented the risk of brain damage, loss of vision, and delayed milestones.

“We appreciate your organization and all that you do to help others. I was afraid of losing my son. Thank you again for giving him life,” says Branton’s mother.

Branton is a toddler from Kenya. He has one sibling. His mother is a stay-at-home mother, and his father is a taxi driver.

Branton was born healthy, but when he was one year old, his mother noticed an abnormal growth on his head. A few weeks ago, Branton was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

The family was referred to our medical partner’s care center, where an MRI was performed and surgery was recommended. If not treated, Branton is at a risk of losing vision and suffering brain damage. Fortunately, he is now scheduled to undergo surgery on May 9. His family needs help raising $1,500 to fund the procedure.

“These are the worst news one could ever receive. We are optimistic though and hope for the best,” shares Branton’s mother.
