SHAWN has funded healthcare for 1 patient in 1 country.
Lister is a 62-year old farmer from Malawi. Lister lives with his wife. Together they have six children and also six grandchildren. In his free time he likes to read books. Since 2016, Lister has been experiencing pain and urinary difficulty. These symptoms are caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia. He needs to undergo a prostate resection surgery, a procedure in which surgeons will remove part of the enlarged gland. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $733 to fund Lister's surgery. On February 12, he will undergo prostate surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner's care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and two weeks of hospital stay. Lister and his family are very excited he will have this surgery. He says, "Thank you to this program for the assistance."
