Shedrack is a baby from Tanzania. His mother sells vegetables at the market, while his father is a construction worker.
For two months, Shedrack has been experiencing difficulty breathing. He also has difficulty sleeping. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Shedrack’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Shedrack, which is scheduled to take place on October 3. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Shedrack of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Shadrack’s mother says, “We would like to help our son but the surgery cost is too high for us to afford. Please help our son.”
