Scam GoFundMe Request
Crystal would like you to support Help Support Charles
by making a donation and helping spread the word.
I’m trying to raise $15,000
$6,750 RAISED / 18 SUPPORTERS / 18 DAYS LEFT
“Charles is a 3 year old boy who desperately needs your help. In March 2018, Charles was diagnosed with a rare disease known as Cholesteatoma, which causes a tumor to grow behind his ear drum.
This life threatening tumor is growing daily and needs to be operated on urgently before it eventually grows into his brain. A pioneering operation costing $15,000 is available privately, we have been able to raise $6,750 but we still need $8,250. This operation will not only lasers the tumor away, but it will also reduce the risk of Charles needing further treatment.
Charles wants to be a doctor when he grows up. Please help us raise the money for Charles operation so that he can live a normal, healthy life and fulfill his dream.
Please share your prayers and financial support to encourage Charles in this battle. Every dollar counts and any amount donated will be highly appreciated.”
