Ameloblastoma




This lad was mentioned in the last newsletter. With the help of the Swinfen Charitable Trust and Mercy Ships we got him and his father to the ship docked at Cotonou in neighbouring Benin where he underwent curative surgery. 

This is a rare but progressive tumour. 

He is recovering well with a partially prosthetic jaw and the post operative picture shows almost complete resolution.
These complex problems have no answer locally and we are developing links to get such patients to specialist services where otherwise the outlook would be very bleak, God is so gracious stirring people to give of their time and skills in His service, two great partner organisations.
