Frank is a 55-year-old teacher and father to four children: a son who works in the boda boda motorcycle taxi business and three daughters who are pursuing their education. He reports that being a private teacher, he is paid less, so he also farms alongside his wife to complement his income.
For three years, Frank has been experiencing swelling beneath his shoulder. The swelling causes paralysis and painful tingling, and Frank noted that it has grown over time. Due to limited finances, he hasn’t been able to seek treatment. Now, Frank’s symptoms are becoming more severe, and he decided to travel to see a doctor at our medical partner’s care center where he was diagnosed with a supra-scapular lipoma.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. On June 6th, surgeons will remove the mass in Frank’s shoulder. Now, Frank needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Frank says, “I hope I will get well after I am operated on and continue teaching and farming in good health.”
