Samuel received surgery to treat osteomyelitis, a serious condition that causes inflammation and infection in bone marrow, so he can run around like other kids.

While under the care of our medical partners, Samuel received several incision and drainage procedures, as well as a sequestrectomy to remove areas of dead bone. Samuel will return for x-rays and checkups, but his doctors say he is expected to fully recover!

Samuel’s father asked us to pass on a big thank you to everyone who helped fund his son’s surgeries. He says he is proud that his son will be able to start school again in a few months.

Samuel is a six-year-old Ethiopian boy who is suffering from a severe case of osteomyelitis, a condition that causes inflammation in bone marrow. Samuel’s osteomyelitis is located in his right leg, and is bringing him intense pain and reduced mobility.

A bone transplant that would give Samuel relief costs $1,495 – an amount that Samuel’s father, a manual laborer recently forced to quit his job to care for his ailing son, can’t field by himself.

Once he’s healthy, Samuel hopes to start school. Let’s set Samuel down the path to recovery and give him a chance to pursue his schooling!
