A huge bone tumor on Bridget’s lower jaw grew to the point where she was no longer able to eat solid food. Death was on the horizon for this orphan in Kenya.
Thanks to CAM’s Special-Needs-Fund, Bridget’s life was spared. Doctors removed her lower jaw and replaced it with titanium plates. Now she can eat and live a normal life again.
Our field staff in Kenya and other countries often encounter unusual medical emergencies like this. People in poverty-stricken areas simply have no way to pay for something like a surgery. The Special-Needs-Fund is a favorite program of many of our field staff, because it provides a way they can help meet critical needs not covered by any of our other programs.
