Stallone is a bright and bold-looking 12-year-old boy residing in Kangemi in Nairobi County. He is the firstborn in a family of 3 children, and he proudly said he is in class seven and going to class eight. At school, Stallone also likes to play football. His mother is a community health volunteer, while his father works as a travel guide. Their income is sufficient for their modest upkeep.
Stallone’s condition may have started years back, but being her first child, his mother shared that she could not tell if there was a problem. It was not until December 2022 when he was undergoing medical care that his parents were informed that he has a condition called cryptorchidism. His family then brought him to Nazareth Hospital, and an ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis.
If not treated, Stallone may have complications like strangulation, and infection and, in the future, may have infertility or be at risk of cancer.
Stallone will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on November 6th. AMH is requesting $483 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I am worried about the future of my son. Kindly support us so that he can be well and grow up like a normal man. We hope in the future he can have his own family,” said Stallone’s mother.
