Keneth is a gentle and social small-business owner. He is also a responsible father, caring for his four children currently studying in primary and secondary schools. Keneth completed primary school but unfortunately could not continue his education due to a lack of funds. To provide for his family and secure school fees for his children, he operates a small business baking chapatis, his primary income source. His wife works as a farmer, contributing to their household’s livelihood. Additionally, he shared that he is an avid Arsenal fan, although he was left disappointed when the team failed to win a trophy. Watching football (soccer) matches has become one of his favorite hobbies!
Keneth developed a swelling on his left thigh that has persisted for over a year. The swelling has grown in size, and causes him discomfort, including sensations of pins & needles, temporary paralysis, and severe pain when walking. Initially, he was concerned that it might be cancer. Seeking medical advice, he underwent a biopsy, but fortunately, the results came back negative for cancer. The surgeon diagnosed him with myxoid liposarcoma and recommended excision treatment.
Keneth traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 4th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Keneth needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Keneth says, “I will be happy seeing my leg back to normal once I am operated on, and I expect a full recovery.”
