Sport Kim is an adorable 7 year old boy you can't help but love! He's active in sports, an avid long boarder and an amazing swimmer. He's the kind of kid people of all ages are drawn to because of his genuine kindness and magnetic personality.
Recently, Sport was brutally attacked by a pit-bull. He underwent immediate facial reconstructive surgery, and needs several more to repair the devastating amount of damage that was done. Sport has been nothing but brave, and is willing to get the needed surgeries and move forward.
What the Doctors Say
Doctors say the remaining surgeries need to begin right away to be effective. Unfortunately, the cost of surgery is astronomical. Although the second surgery is scheduled, it will not happen unless we pull together and help this family before it’s too late to proceed.
***UPDATE*** because of people who got involved through this fundraiser, the family was able to consult with physicians they otherwise wouldn't have had access to. Although it doesnt change the fact that Sport will still require the much needed surgeries, he will now be in the hands of the best care possible and will be utelizing more qualified surgeons whom the parents feel are better suited for their son. Unlike the past two surgeons, the current surgeon (located in Cincinnati, Ohio) has advised waiting until the trauma area at the scar site has had more time to heal before going forward. This surgeon voiced his concerns regarding doing the surgeries immediately, as suggested by the original two surgeons consulted. Sport still requires the surgeries, but will be going forward at the request and advice of his current surgeon.
