Patient profile (3/24): Habtamu

Habtamu has spinal cord damage (myelopathy) from his gamma deformity. His neurologic function is getting worse, and he has more difficulty walking. His parents are illiterate farmers in Tilili in Gojjam. A 9th grade student, he needs months of traction and then removal of vertebrae (VCR). He wants to be a nurse.

We recently sent 24 patients to Ghana for life-saving spine surgery, and we need to raise money in order to fund their treatment. Please donate today to help Habtamu!
