Daniel is a 15-year-old boy from Haiti with throat cancer. Before the tumor emerged on his neck, Daniel loved going to school and playing soccer and marbles with his friends.

When his tumor got large enough, Daniel dropped out of school because he was embarrassed. Now, he is too weak to attend school. He is losing weight because he can’t eat normally with the painful tumor in his neck. He also coughs constantly and has trouble hearing.

“Daniel needs help to get over this illness,” his mother says. “I want him to go back to school to learn to read because I didn’t have the chance to do that.”
