I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers. — Helen Keller
What a dedicated foster father Kai has! We love the adoration on his face and hope that he will instill a sense of security in nearly two-year-old Kai, who will certainly need every advantage that he can get as he begins his life. Little Kai was diagnosed with retinoblastoma (a cancerous tumor in the retina) and had surgery to remove his right eyeball in January.
At the time he was tumor-free in his left eye, and the doctors were hopeful they could save his left eye. Kai developed a small tumor on the left retina, so the doctors asked that he be moved immediately for a treatment called cryotherapy. Unfortunately, when the doctors examined him, they decided it was best to remove his left eye as well.
Our poor little Kai is completely blind now. Because he needed to be moved for his surgery so quickly, we weren’t able to fully fund him. If you would like to read more about Kai or help fund his surgery, please visit his sponsor page. We will continue to check to make sure he is cancer free. Our hospital manager tells us he is doing well, and the doctors are optimistic!
