18 year old Immnauel, was born with neurofibromatosis on the 14th of November 1995. Which in simple English, means that he was born with a condition that affects the strength of his skin. His skin is not really able to hold up any tumours that form underneath it.
Immanuel underwent a procedure about 5 years ago to correct this condition but unfortunately, in most cases, the skin did begin to sag again after a few years.>br>br>br
On Thursday, 14th of November 2013, on his 18th birthday, Immanuel underwent his procedure to remove
the tumour on the side of his face.
On the 22nd of July 2014, the tumours on his eye were removed. He is currently recovering in Gobabis at his home. The next procedure will be scheduled as soon as the doctor is happy with his recovery.
We will try and continue to assist Immanuel as much as we can.
