I am Raphael Ngigi, Caleb Ndungu Ngigi's father.He has been diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, a brain tumor that affects children or old adults in their 60s. Caleb is 1 yr and 3 months.He has had a brain VP Shunt operation at Gertrude's Children hospital, an operation at a cost of Ksh.600,000.This was a preparatory surgery aimed at draining the excess brain fluid which had started building too much pressure on the brain.The neurosurgeon has referred him for the major surgery at Mp Shah and we are seeking help to cater for the bill which the doctor has approximated to be between Ksh 1,000,000 - ksh.2,000,000 based on how he will respond in the ICU: worst case recorded ICU scenario so far has been 6 weeks.

The Neurosurgeon cites that he can only operate in a hospital with a microscope due to the location of this tumor(it is touching brain capillaries); MP shah or Agha Khan.We are therefore seeking for medical appeal so that we can give our son a chance to be a healthy child and he will possibly one day save a child with a similar condition.
