$ 3,965 Raised

Goal: $ 8,750

Hi! My name is Meagan Theresa Gianna ... my name means "priceless little pearl" and I truly believe this is what all God's children are - priceless pearls. All different and unique, yet valuable. I was born on September 23rd, 2011 with a brain condition called Hydrocephalus. My doctors found in my 20 week ultrasound that instead of brain tissue, I had fluid gathering in my head. In America, doctors use a device called a shunt to let me live with my Hydrocephalus 50% of the time meaning emergency brain surgery. Kids like me in Uganda do not have the access to these emergency surgeries. This problem prompted a very smart neurosurgeon to create a new procedure that meets their needs better. Since 2000 over 5,000 lives have been saved, 10 surgeons have been trained, and ground-breaking research has been shared. This method is saving lives of so many kids who would otherwise have no hope. But the need is so much greater. More surgeons, hospitals, and education is needed.
The wonderful thing about CURE is that along with life saving medical treatment, they also share God's faith with their patients. They pray with the families, and provide emotional and spiritual guidance. They teach the patients and families about Jesus and all His wonderful love.
It costs about $1750 for a lifesaving surgery for a child in Uganda with Hydrocephalus. I know I was put here for a reason, and one of those I believe is to raise awareness about this condition, and help other children born with Hydro who may not have easy access to medical treatment. Any amount given will help save the life of a child like me - and that, is priceless.
