She had been forced to drop out of school and rendered immobile following a strange breast disease that attacked her late last year and was in dire need of help to rescue her life. According to the patient’s father his daughter’s breasts have dramatically enlarged for the last six months consequently touching her knees completely impeding her mobility. Rael is alive and healthy today thanks to Halala Organization.
