Carlos is in constant pain...and he's only 6 years old. FA184

Carlos is only 6 years old, but he looks more like a 3 year old. He has several medical concerns that need immediate attention. First of all, Carlos has a lot of pain in his mouth because of the alignment of his teeth. It's a rare problem, but little Carlos suffers greatly from it. We have sent him to a specialist to get an estimate of how to fix this problem and relieve Carlos of his constant pain. Carlos will need to have surgery and basically have all of his teeth removed. This is an extensive procedure and will cost $350. If you could help with any of this expense, it would make a huge difference for little Carlos so that he isn't in constant pain.

Also, Carlos was in an accident when he was young and has had cerebral problems ever since. He cannot move his body, and he is 6 years old. His mother has never sent him to a neurologist because they are very poor and just assumed any problems were irreversible. However, we believe that this little boy should at least have the chance to be seen by a doctor and given a proper medical diagnosis. Only then, will we be able to understand what is really wrong with him and if his cerebral problems can be helped. At this time, we can't say how much a neurologist will cost, and Carlos won't be able to make an appointment until after his dental surgery.

Carlos's father has abandoned the family and wants nothing to do with him. So Carlos's mother is trying to help relieve him of his pain alone. She has already made the appointment for Carlos to have his surgery, but she cannot afford all of it, so is asking for any help you might be able to give.
