Quadri K. is 12 years old and since nursery school he and his family have been assisted by Loving Gaze team. At a very early age he started having sight issues and he is now partially blind.  A year ago 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. The damage to the pituitary gland causes hormonal dysfunction, with small stature, dysfunction to the cortisol system, thyroid, sexual development. The mass caused the damage to the eyes.

He had a medical surgery at Luth Lagos in June 2013 and he is now back in school. His conditions are still critical and he will need continuous medical support but he has been stabilized.
