Jimena from Guatemala:

Medical Condition: Needed Prosthetic Eye

Summary: Jimena comes from a very poor family in the Guatemala. She developed a neuroblastoma (eye cancer) when she was born. In order to keep the cancer from spreading to other areas of her body and taking her life, her eye had to be removed.

Treatment Plan: Compassion Medicine was able to have a fully custom prosthetic eye made for Jimena and getting this new eye has changed her life, allowing her to avoid the stigmatism of looking different from her friends and to have a normal life. She is a happy little girl now!
