Enderson has been suffering from seizures since he was six or seven months old. He has tried to seek out care through other outlets, but his family has been unable to afford expensive imaging–leaving the cause of his recurring seizures a mystery.
Enderson is 10 years old, and from a rural community in Guatemala. He likes to spend his free time cooking, doing crafts, arranging flowers, and playing soccer with his brothers. He likes to listen to instrumental music, and eat grapes. He and his family are very involved in their church, which they go to every Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. His parents both work hard, but they cannot afford to buy food for the family as well as Enderson’s expensive medical care.
He has been having constant headache for the past two months, and has been having nausea and vomiting almost every day. This has caused him to stay home from school, hurting his ability to graduate on time and fulfill his dreams.
Treatment will give Enderson high-quality medical imaging, labs, and medication which will provide him with a more fine-tuned diagnosis and allow him to manage his symptoms. Once he feels better, he will be able to go back to school, and he will be able to pursue his dreams as a chef.
