Peruvian Teen Undergoing Genital Reconstruction Surgery in Miami

A Miami foundation has announced a campaign to pay for genitalia reconstruction for a Peruvian teen who was shot in the groin. Jackson Memorial Foundation's International Kids Wonderfund wants to raise $50,000 for surgery for 17-year-old Luis Canelos. When Canelos was just nine, he suffered a gunshot wound to his groin that destroyed nearly all of his genitalia except for a portion of his right testicle. Canelos' father, Roger Canelos, said neither he nor the boy's mother were present when he was playing with a shotgun which blew off his genitalia.
