Jane is a 63-year-old farmer and single mother of two children who both completed secondary school, and both now work at a saloon and as a mechanic respectively. Jane is a small-scale farmer but depends on her two children to sustain her.
For five months, Jane has experienced post-menopausal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with cancer of the uterus. If not treated, the cancer may spread to other parts of the body and may lead to death. She needs a total hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $755 to fund Jane’s surgery. On September 6th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Jane will be able to resume her daily activities and live her life free of pain.
“I am scared of what the doctor has told me and hope I can get help and be operated on soon. I am the only hope for my children and wish to remain there and be strong for them. I kindly seek your consideration,” said Jane looking very concerned.
