Dear F2F friends,
Bright Angase is an HIV+ boy on our Rising Stars team - the first HIV+ youth sports team in the continent. He's 17. I've known him for years and he's a wonderful kid. He's been so sick most of his life.
Bright is in one of the main hospitals in Malawi - when we visited him, he could barely raise his head. He hasn't eaten in days, and KS sores are eating away at his body. Not to mention TB and malaria.
F2F doesn't deal with direct medical intervention, but we're doing everything we can to get Bright the treatment that we in the West take for granted. But until that actually happens, I now a child's life, at moments like this, can hinge on the child himself. So today, a new shirt, some airplane paraphernalia, saying we think he could be a start in this August's Youth Tournament of Hope - such small things to make Bright be strong inside.
It's really one day at a time. I'll let you know what happens.
Ken Wong, Founder and Executive Director
