Grace received surgery to remove a brain tumor that had been causing her persistent seizures and severe headaches.

“I would like to be like other children.” says Grace, a nine-year-old Kenyan student who lives with her mother and two siblings in the outskirts of Nairobi.

Grace has a brain tumor that has been causing persistent seizures, severe headaches, and affecting her walking.
