Wilson underwent brain surgery.

Wilson received successful surgery. He has also recovered well and was discharged. The surgery reduced the intracranial pressure exerted by the tumor. Wilson is scheduled for clinical visits to review his recovery progress. Wilson remains grateful for the help.

Wilson says, “I hope to be well completely and be able to provide for my children. Thank you Watsi.”

Meet Wilson, a 50-year-old father of two children from Kenya. He enjoys discussing politics and interacting with guests at the hotel where he works.

In February of this year, Wilson developed a persistent headache. Wilson initially managed the headache with painkillers but by the end of April, he noticed that his eyesight was worsening. Wilson sought immediate medical attention at our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kijabe Hospital, where he was given pain medication and underwent a CT scan. The CT scan subsequently revealed that Wilson has a brain tumor. He has not been back to work since then and can no longer go anywhere on his own.

On July 7, Wilson will undergo a craniotomy to remove the brain tumor. The specimen will also be sent to a pathology laboratory to undergo further testing to determine if the tumor is malignant. Wilson and his extended family have raised $312 for his surgery but he needs our help to fund the remaining $1,495. This will cover Wilson’s surgery, hospital stay, and laboratory tests.

“I want to be well as my children need me,” Wilson shares with our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation.
