Amon's treatment was fully funded on April 14, 2013.

Amon is a Kenyan high school student who, for months, has suffered from headaches, dizziness, and problems with coordination. Recently, Amon was diagnosed with cerebral arteriovenous malformation, a brain condition that can be life-threatening if left untreated.

Doctors at Kijabe hospital tell us that the most likely curative treatment for Amon’s condition is a craniotomy. During the procedure, surgeons will temporarily remove part of Amon’s skull, resect the abnormal vessels, and set his brain up to function normally.
