Peninah is a 57-year-old woman from Kenya and the mother of two children. Her daughter was recently married and her son helps support the family financially. “For about one year Peninah started experiencing lower abdominal discomfort, and then she noticed her tummy had begun to increase in size,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “After numerous hospitals visits, an MRI revealed a huge ovarian mass that was already pressing on the bowel loops (intestines) and needed to be removed.” Before her diagnosis, Peninah stayed busy farming and socializing with friends and family. Her condition, however, causes her to experience symptoms of pain and discomfort — preventing Peninah from working, making money and having leisure time. $790 will fund the treatment she needs to remove the mass. The procedure includes a total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) along with a five-day hospital stay and post-operative medications. A TAH involves the removal of the entire reproductive system, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Without treatment, “the mass will continue to grow and press more on Peninah's other organs leading to other complications,” adds AMHF. The treatment will “alleviate her discomfort and reduce the risk of the mass turning cancerous.” Peninah shares, “the doctor said the mass is growing fast and I need surgery soon. I am worried and hope Watsi will help me so that I can be operated and gain my life back.” Let’s help Peninah and fund this life-changing surgery!
