Kyden is a sweet four-year-old boy. He has an older sibling who is eight years old. His mother is a homemaker, while his father does phone repairs. The family shared that their income is inconsistent, and they have not had national health insurance since 2018. They requested assistance for their son’s surgery cost.
Kyden has had a proboscoid umbilical hernia since birth. In December 2020, he started experiencing stomach pains, so his parents brought him to the children’s hospital at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), for review. Surgeons determined he would need to return for hernia repair surgery in a year. Kyden’s family waited a year and then returned for his surgery, which will take place on January 5th. Upon recovery, he will be able to live more comfortably. AMH is requesting $585 to fund Kyden’s surgery.
Kyden’s mother shared, “This protrusion on the stomach keeps growing and looks uncomfortable. This surgery will help rectify this condition that has worried us a lot.”
