Quadri K. is 12 years old and since nursery school he and his family have been assisted by St Kizito team. At a very early age he started having sight issues and he is now partially blind. Recent medical examination diagnosed a Craniopharyngioma: this is a mass at the base of the skull, compressing the brain and affecting the pituitary gland. The damage of this tumor comes mainly from the compression of close structures in the brain, becoming worse and even treathening his life.
