Maxwell is a baby from Kenya. He is the second of two children.
Maxwell 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, Maxwell has been experiencing an increasing head circumference. Without treatment, Maxwell will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the cost of surgery for Maxwell that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on March 28 and will drain the excess fluid from Maxwell’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Maxwell will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
