Byron is a 10-month-old baby from Kenya. Byron’s mother is a part-time a teacher with a monthly income of $150. His father left them long before Byron was born.
Byron was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Byron has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Byron will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 9th. AMHF is requesting $542 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“Please help my son get treated,” says Byron’s mother.
