Mustafa Omar is a bright 13yr old boy from Burnsville, Minnesota.
This summer, his family was in Somalia when one morning, Mustafa felt a little tired and was not able to go to school. As Mustafa tried to rest, his situation worsened, and he started having seizures.
He was rushed to the hospital, but unfortunately, Mustafa continued having violent seizures. He fell into a state of coma. Mustafa was airlifted from Mogadishu, Somalia to Nairobi, Kenya for advanced medical care.
After weeks of diagnosis, treatment, and medication, Mustafa is still in a coma and the doctors have yet to determine his condition, diagnosis, or possible causes. Their only suggestion is for Mustafa to be transferred to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota via air ambulance.
The family had already spent more than $100,000 in medical expenses to care for Mustafa.
The travel cost alone to transfer Mustafa to Mayo Clinic will cost $209,000 minimum because he has to be transferred to a chartered ambulance plane because of his condition and medical needs.
We would like to ask you to help bring Mustafa home as soon as possible so that he gets the medical care he needs.
