Bryson is a bright 4-year-old child. He’s is a happy, charming, and talkative boy. He is the first child of his parents who live in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Bryson’s father works as a motorcycle taxi driver.
Bryson has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Bryson has been experiencing headaches, fever, and mild seizures. Without treatment, Bryson will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,300 to cover the cost of surgery for Bryson that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 17th and will drain the excess fluid from Bryson’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Bryson will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
Bryson’s father says, “I wish for my son to be well again and resume school. He was doing very well in school but now seems to be a bit forgetful and unable to walk properly. Please help us.”
