Brandon is a two-year-old boy from Kenya. He has lived alone with his mother, who works as a spice vendor, ever since his initial diagnosis.
Late last year, Brandon was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a medical condition in which the testes remain undescended. Without surgical intervention, Brandon is at risk of the development of an inguinal hernia, infertility, and testicular cancer.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $542 to fund a double orchidopexy for Brandon, which intends to move and fix Brandon’s undescended testes into his scrotum. His treatment is scheduled to take place on June 26 and, once completed, will hopefully allow Brandon to live free from the medical complications that his condition currently puts him at risk of developing.
