Emmanuel received treatment to remove a brain tumor.

“Emmanuel’s surgery went on well, except that he hasn’t been able to open his left eye yet!” Staff at our partner African Mission Healthcare Foundation write, “According to the surgeon, the swelling on Emmanuel’s frontal has caused the eye not to open up, however, it will subside and he will be able to open his eye. Ultimately, the pressure on his brain will stabilize with time and his doctors look forward too a full recovery.”

Emmanuel’s father says, “Thanks for the support you have accorded my son. We came here without anything, yet you’ve treated my son. May the Lord bless you abundantly.”

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.
