Susan is a soft-spoken woman from Kenya. She is a widow and a mother of six children who are now all adults. She currently resides in her ancestral home in Limuru, Kenya.
For four months, Susan has been experiencing pain and abnormal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia, a precancerous condition that impacts her quality of life. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Susan’s national health insurance coverage has not been active, and despite reactivation, she will have to wait for more than 60 days before using it. However, she is unable to continue living with her condition as is and urgently needs to undergo her procedure to rid her body of the risk of cancer. Her family cannot afford her treatment and is appealing for financial assistance.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1260 to fund Susan’s surgery. On June 1st, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Susan will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Susan says, “I am old and need to get treatment for this bleeding condition. It is very uncomfortable.”
