Serina is an adorable toddler and the youngest in a family of six children. Her mother is a nursing assistant at a health center and her father is a self-employed farmer. It is especially difficult for them to raise the money for their daughter’s surgery.
Six months ago, Serina developed a growth on the left intra axillary area–the area around her arm pit. She no longer sleeps on the affected side. She has pain and discomfort as well as her mother fearing disfigurement. She sometimes fails to eat when she is in pain.
Serina’s condition alarmed her parents, who feared the lump was cancerous. Examination thankfully found Serina was free from cancer. Instead, she was diagnosed with a ganglionic cystic mass, a fluid-filled lump, in the left intra axillary area.
Serina’s family traveled to the care center of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, to receive treatment. On September 5th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Serina’s family needs help to raise $188 to fund this procedure.
Serina’s mother says, “I kindly seek your consideration and support for surgery of my daughter so that we can be at ease. Seeing my daughter in good health is my pride always and I hope to resume my work to earn a living for my family.”
