Anibal received eye surgery to treat retinoblastoma, a type of eye cancer.

Anibal’s doctor says, “Anibal’s mother is so grateful for the help, and for the compassionate care. She is also immensely relieved that her son doesn’t actually seem too bothered by the loss of the eye - the tumor was so big that he couldn’t see out of the eye anyway, probably for several years. She’s glad to get this behind them.”

Unbeknownst to his family, three-year-old Anibal hasn’t been able to see out of his left eye for years due to a type of eye cancer called retinoblastoma.

Anibal’s mother recently visited Wuqu’ Kawoq, a Watsi medical partner in Guatemala, for a general checkup. While evaluating her, a doctor noticed that there seemed to be something wrong with her son Anibal, who was also in the room.

Upon further examination, the doctor discovered that Anibal is going blind because of cancer. Anibal’s family is understandably emotional about the diagnosis. They cannot afford the high-quality care Anibal needs to beat this cancer and see again.

That’s where we come in. For $1500, we can pay for Anibal to receive surgery, most likely to remove his eye. Depending on pathology results, he may need radiation or chemotherapy. Let’s show Anibal and his family that we’re with them the whole way!
