Nolan is a child from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of two children.
For two years, Nolan has been experiencing flu-like symptoms, trouble breathing, low appetite, and sleep apnea. Frequent illness has caused the family to make repeated trips to hospitals for his care. Nolan 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 Nolan, which is scheduled to take place on October 19. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Nolan of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Nolan’s mother says, “I hope that my son will be able to sleep soundly without suffering of sleep apnea and that he will have a good childhood.”
