Nasomi was unable to undergo tonsil surgery.

Nasomi has not yet had his surgery and this is because the doctors couldn’t intubate him. Intubation is the process of inserting a tube, called an endotracheal tube (ET), through the mouth and then into the airway. This is done so that a patient can be placed on a ventilator to assist with breathing during anesthesia or sedation. He is currently on medication while the doctors are still trying to figure out another way to go.

Nasomi is a child from Tanzania. For two years, Nasomi has been experiencing difficulty breathing. Nasomi was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Nasomi, which is scheduled to take place on July 19. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Nasomi of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

Nasomi’s uncle says, “My nephew has been struggling to breathe for years please help him we can’t afford his treatment cost.”
