This is Emmanuel. He’s 11-years-old and he lives in Kenya with his parents and five brothers and sisters. Emmanuel’s parents both work to support their big family - his father is a security guard and his mother farms.
“Emmanuel has been to two different hospitals over the last two months without any improvement,” our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), tells us. He was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. “Emmanuel is not able to walk without support and is always drowsy. He has not been able to attend school this term because of his condition.”
The recommended treatment to remove the tumor from Emmanuel’s brain and to help him resume a normal and healthy life includes a brain tumor surgery, or more specifically, a craniotomy, which will cost $1260.
“I am so sad to see my child’s condition deteriorate every day,” says Emmanuel’s father. “I pray and hope that he gets treatment as soon as possible. We pray that we’ll get funding for his surgical care soon.”
Let’s fund this procedure and help Emmanuel out.
