Brenda received life-saving surgery to remove a brain tumor.

“Brenda’s headaches have subsided greatly,” her doctor at African Mission Healthcare Foundation writes. “Brenda is less likely to become blind. She will also be able to walk well and live a normal and healthy life once she is fully recovered.”

Brenda’s mother says, “I am so happy when I see my daughter smile and recovering! I am thankful for the support.”

Meet Brenda, a two-year-old girl living in Kenya with her parents and three siblings. Brenda has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

According to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, “Brenda’s sickness began a couple of weeks ago and [her health] has significantly deteriorated. Brenda is unable to walk and suffers from severe headaches.” Without craniotomy surgery, “Brenda is likely to suffer brain damage and/or death,” her doctors explain.

Brenda’s father works on a tea plantation and her mother does small scale farming on a piece of land inherited from her parents. Raising funds for Brenda’s surgical care has been quite a challenge for her family but they are determined to get her access to the care she needs. Her mother says, “Watching Brenda battle this illness has been very painful, and I pray that she gets treatment immediately, so that she lives a healthy life.”

For $1,260 we can give Brenda the treatment she needs to grow up healthily and happily. Our medical partners say that with surgery, they expect that Brenda “will be able to attend school and have a normal life when she grows up.” Let’s help give Brenda a bright future!
