Enzo is a four-month-old baby in Haiti. He lives with his mother, father and older brother.
Enzo has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid–the fluid which surrounds the brain–accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. This accumulation of fluid has caused Enzo’s head to expand beyond a healthy range. Without treatment, Enzo will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, Project Medishare, can help Enzo. The surgeons plan to use an endoscope to drain the excess fluid and relieve the pressure on Enzo’s brain. This critical treatment will greatly improve Enzo’s quality of life. Surgery is scheduled for November 9 at Hospital Bernard Mevs, the only site in Haiti where this care is available.
With proper treatment, Enzo will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
Project Medishare is requesting $897 to cover the cost of surgery for Enzo.
The family is hoping that this surgery with allow Enzo to live a healthy life.
