Gael's Craniosynostosis Surgery

Hi, how are you? My friend's baby Gael is now 10 months old, he was born with craniosynostosis, which means that a suture of his skull was closed prematurely. This causes the deformation of his head and prevents his brain from growing normally. To avoid this from causing harm, he must undergo a remodeling surgery of the skull. This is a major surgery and I tried to do it in a public hospital because of the high cost and complexity of the procedure, but until today it has been impossible, we have gone through 4 hospitals and for many other reasons we have not been able to perform the surgery. The ideal moment of surgery was before his 6 months, and should be done as soon as possible to avoid causing damage and accentuate the cranial deformity. I went to a private clinic to request a budget of the procedure and it reaches the amount of $2,500. My intention is to ask the government for help, but if this is not achieved we are in a hurry. I ask for your help to achieve the goal. I know that the sum is exorbitant but any help will be welcome to finally solve this situation. I have tried so far to maintain discretion in the matter but I have not been able to resolve it in this way, however I have received the support of many friends who have helped me collect money but this has not been enough. That is why I ask for your help to see if it is possible and it is in your possibilities to support me at this time. I would appreciate any help because the economic situation of the country has prevented us from resolving this condition in time, even though we detected it at the right time. God bless you and your generosity, thanks for your help in behalf of my son Gael!
