Patient profile (4/24): Brook

Brook is a 9 year old orphan who lives with his grandmother in Addis Ababa. Kind neighbors often given them food. He has an S-shaped juvenile scoliosis deformity. He must get “growing rods” to allow his spine to grow without becoming terribly deformed. Brook is at the top of his class, and wants to be a doctor.

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 Brook!
