Fabian is a baby from Tanzania. His parents are both subsistence farmers. They have spent almost all their savings seeking treatment for Fabian.
Since he was one month old, Fabian has been experiencing sleep apnea and difficulty breathing. This causes him frequent illness. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Fabian’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Fabian, which is scheduled to take place on May 17. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Fabian of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Fabian’s father says, “Please help my son get treatment and get better. There is nothing I can do or say that is going to show how grateful I will be for that.”
