Meet Victor Chukwueke


Victor Chukwueke, born into impoverished conditions in a small African village, also suffered from a serious genetic disorder that caused massive life-threatening tumors and deformed his face.

Despite all obstacles and facing insurmountable barriers, Victor’s extraordinarily humble and inspiring story is one of extreme passion, committed to his education, fulfillment of a dream to attend medical school and a mission to help others less fortunate.

Quoted numerous times in the media, Victor proudly shares “God saved my life and provided me the enthusiasm for science so I could make a difference in the health and lives of thousands of others”.  “That the tumors were a blessing from God. They were the catalyst that propelled me on this journey and have now inspired Victor’s Hope Foundation.”
