Leeso is a baby from Kenya. He is the youngest of four children.
Leeso has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Leeso has been experiencing vomiting and barely feeds. Without treatment, Leeso will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the cost of surgery for Leeso that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 18 and will drain the excess fluid from Leeso’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Leeso will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
“I thank God for BethanyKids. My hopes have been revived,” says Leeso’s mother.
