Rosette, who is a small-scale farmer, is 45 years old, and the mother of four young children. Rosette’s husband is also a farmer, and together, they work hard to make ends meet for their family.
For two years now, Rosette has been experiencing severe, lower abdominal pain, which has made it difficult for her to perform her daily tasks efficiently. Due to the family’s financial constraints, however, she has been unable to seek medical attention. Now, due to the worsening of her condition, and the appearance of additional symptoms, Rosette has become concerned that she might have cancer. After finally being evaluated, she was diagnosed with a premalignant cervical lesion, which requires surgical intervention.
On July 13th, Rosette will undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Rosette’s surgery. Once she has recovered, Rosette will be able to resume her daily activities, free of pain.
Rosette says: “I have been in much pain with worsening condition, and it has lowered my social life. I appeal for your support so that I can live well as I resume with farming.”
