Hillary is a three-year-old boy and the only child to his single mother. Hillary’s mother works at a local safari company as a receptionist and through this work she is able to earn enough to support Hillary.
Hillary has been diagnosed with genu varus, which means that his legs bow outwards. The condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Hillary has difficulty walking and is unable to walk long distances.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $880 to fund corrective surgery for Hillary. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 7th. It will hopefully restore Hillary’s mobility, allowing him to participate in a variety of activities and greatly reducing his risk of future complications.
Hillary’s mother shared, “my son needs this treatment but we are stranded because his insurance cannot cover the surgery cost. Please help since I don’t think I will ever be able to save enough to afford the treatment cost.”
