Dikembe Mutombo Sponsors Congolese Boy To Have Massive Tumor Removed From Face

Dikembe Mutombo is fully dedicated to using his wealth and influence to help the people in his Motherland home of Congo. The charitable baller built the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital to provide free breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings for Congolese women. Mutombo is now taking his battle against Congolese health crises here in the states…

His non-profit organization, The Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, has sought to change the life of a young boy from the Congo who has a massive tumor on the side of his face. Dikembe flew the boy to Los Angeles in order to have a special team of doctors to remove it safely.

We love this. Good on Dikembe. Godspeed to the young man
