Patient profile (5/24): Meseret

Meseret is a 26-year-old from Gondar who is at the top of his 8th-grade class. He comes from a family of farmers, and he currently lives with an uncle. Meseret’s dream is to become a doctor and return to his village.

He has severe kyphosis from TB (of the spine) and has lost 40% of his lung volume as a result. He will need months of traction followed by removal of vertebrae (VCR) to correct this.

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 Meseret!
