Denis is a 64-year-old small scale farmer and a father of three children. He lives with his wife in a three-room home. Their family relies on farming for their daily food and sells the surplus to meet their other needs. Denis proudly shared that he has educated all of his children, and they are all married and now have their own responsibilities.
Three years ago, Denis developed a small mass under his left chest. The mass has been growing over time, and while testing confirmed that it is not cancerous, he needs to have the mass removed to reduce future risk.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Denis to receive treatment. A surgeon at AMH’s care center performed an exam and recommended that he undergo surgery. On September 21st, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Denis needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.
Denis shared, “I pray and hope to look normal again after the surgery. I am worried but I can’t afford it. I will continue with farming to be able to take good care of myself and my family.”
