Vaughn is a three-year-old boy from the Philippines. He is the youngest sibling of three. He loves playing with his cousins just like any other child at his age. His father is a construction worker earning minimum wage; while his mother is a stay-at-home mom.
Three months ago Vaughn’s parents noticed a swelling around his belly button. They brought him to the hospital for care and Vaughn has been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes severe stomachaches. Fortunately, on November 10th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner is requesting $1,130 to fund Vaughn’s surgery at Our Lady of Peace Hospital. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
“After the surgery, we hope Vaughn will be able to enjoy his childhood and not ever hesitate to play,” shared Edgar, Vaughn’s father.
