Life Saving Surgery needed for a boy in China

Xian (pronounced Shen) is a 5 year old boy in South East China. He has a blood disorder and a severe curvature of the spine.

The curve in his spine has gotten so severe that his breast bone has begun to curve causing his lung capacity to diminish. He is slowing suffocating to death.

On top of that, the curvature has caused bowing of his legs as well as pain down his legs causing him to be unable to stand unassisted. He can only remain standing with assisting for a few moments.

RWI is raising the money to provide this boy with a life saving spinal surgery.

Please help us reach our goal of $6000 to cover his medical expenses in china.
