Eric - Age 10
Eric is a patient of mine from my charitable mission to Guatemala. This young child was severely burnt at age 2 in a crib fire lit by his older brother. His mother is a single mother of 5 children. The youngest son has Downs syndrome.
Eric has had multiple charitable surgeries on his face and body. Even after 8 years of reconstructive surgery, Eric still can not close his eyes or his mouth. He has no left ear and no working fingers on his left hand. Erics right hand has two fingers. His wrists are scared down and the severe scar contracture limits his ability to use his hands.
Eric does not attend school. He helps his family by working in the produce fields.
This is the first time Erics mother has allowed his photo to be taken as he has been made fun of and stared at since the accident burnt his face beyond recognition eight painful years ago.
My mission is to personally sponsor this child and bring him, his mother and handicapped younger brother to the USA to give Eric the best reconstructive surgical care in the world.
The major reconstructive surgeries Eric needs now cannot be performed in a make shift hospital like the one we operated out of in Guatemala. He needs multiple complex reconstructive surgeries skillfully performed over a period of months along with appropriate after care to aid in his recovery.
I have assembled a very skilled team of reconstructive surgeons to assist me here in the United States. I am arranging aftercare and operating facilities including my own. I am working with a financial group who may aid me privately with the costs involved in Erics surgeries, medical care, and transportation and living expenses during his stay in the USA.
Despite the Bureaucratic resistance I am meeting, I am determined to give my all, heart and soul , to make a life changing difference in Erics life.
