Peace is a farmer and a mother of five girls who are all married and practice small-scale farming to earn a living. Peace and her husband also earn their living through small-scale farming. The family is not in a financial position to cater for the surgery Peace needs and are appealing for financial assistance.
Ten years ago, Peace began to experience troubling symptoms, including an anterior neck swelling, persistent headache, losing breath, drowsiness, and a lot more swelling at night. She was diagnosed with multiple nodular goiter. She needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Peace receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on November 12th at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $252, and she and her family need help raising money.
Peace says, “I sometimes fail to breathe so well at night. I hope the surgery will change that.”
