Enmanuel is a 10 year old boy who lives in Esteli, Nicaragua and was born with infantile cerebral palsy plus spasticity. He needs medication to calm down the spasticity that is bought in Guatemala and is extremely expensive. This medicine allows his muscles to relax and for him to rest for 3 hours. As he continues to grow, the pain spasms only become stronger and more frecuent.
Recently he had a rhizotomy to try to control the spasticity but the results were ineffective.
The solution, according to the neurosurgeon Dr Huerta, is to surgically insert a baclofen pump to keep his body from the continuos contracciones.
Surgery and treatment has to be done in Costa Rica, since Nicaragua is not adequately medically for this procedure, only adding to the cost.
This is an urgent matter: as you are reading this, Enmanuel and his family are suffering endlessly. You can make a huge difference in their life with your uunderstanding donations
His surgery is planned on June/19/18 and is subject to our ability to raise the remaining balance for the procedure.
If you are a doctor o have any idea of something else that can be done in this case, please contact me. I am trying my best to help This family that God put on my way when I visited my family in Nicaragua. I beg you to help change somebody's life. I thank you in advance. God bless you all.
