I am a table leader at First Baptist Church of Naples Florida and I was approached by a man from Haiti a couple of months ago and he has this disease. He has left his wife and 3 children home in Haiti and came to the U.S. looking for help. I feel led by the Holy Spirit to get this man surgery so he can go home a whole man and take care of his family. Can You help in anyway? If not God Bless If you can God Bless!
