Aria arrived home from a long day of working in the fields to find her 12-year-oldson, Abdou, unresponsive with a high fever. She spent the next 3 hours transporting Abdou to St Martin de Porres Hospital in Cameroon. Cerebral malaria was quickly diagnosed and IV medications begun. Aria remained at Abdou’s bedside as he remained in a coma the next 48 hours. A huge smile on Aria’s face the next day told us Abdou had woken from his coma. She provided for all his needs until his complete recovery a week later.
