Living in a small village outside Nairobi, Kenya, 16-year-old John lives in a small shanty with his mother and two younger sisters. Since birth John has suffered from seizures that went untreated for the first 15 years of his life. The seizures caused severe brain damage that stunted his growth and left him unable to walk or talk. Johns’ mother and younger sister work odd jobs to help pay for food and care for John.
