Jayden is a one-month old baby boy from Haiti and his parents’ first child. He was developing well until he was three weeks old, when his parents noticed that his head appeared swollen.
His parents took him to visit the care center of our medical partner, Project Medishare, for examination and treatment. He was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, or a condition in which a buildup of fluid puts pressure on the brain. On October 10th, he will undergo a procedure to relieve the pressure on his brain. After recovery, Jayden will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy. Now, his family needs help to raise $897 to fund his procedure and care.
Jayden’s family shared that they are very scared, but comforted by the fact that the baby is in the surgeon’s hands. They are happy and relieved that he will have the surgery he needs quickly.
