Fabrice is a baby from Kenya. He is the youngest in a family of three children.
Fabrice has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Fabrice has been experiencing irritability and and increasing head circumference. Without treatment, Fabrice will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the cost of surgery for Fabrice that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on October 30 and will drain the excess fluid from Fabrice’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Fabrice will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
“Our entire family was shocked to learn of this condition but we are all praying for God’s will in Fabrice’s life,” says Fabrice’s mother.
