Meet Boubacar
Only two weeks after arriving in the United States, Boubacar was seen in one of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Primary Care Centers. As a result, he was referred to Nationwide Children's Neurosciences Center because he was experiencing pain and weakness. There he was diagnosed with Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome, a rare genetic muscle disease that steals his ability to walk. 

Boubacar represents the thousands of children who come to us for care and benefit from your generosity all year long. Boubacar hopes that one day we can cure all diseases. Learn how your gift can help make his dream come true at
