Juliet is an infant from Kenya. She is the youngest in a family of two children.
Juliet has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of her condition, Juliet has been experiencing an increasing head circumference. Without treatment, Juliet will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the cost of surgery for Juliet that will treat her hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 14 and will drain the excess fluid from Juliet’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Juliet will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl.
Juliet’s mother says, “My prayer is to have my daughter treated, and get well.”
