Cristina is a 53-year-old woman from the Philippines. She works hard doing laundry to support her family and is the sole breadwinner of her household.
In 2014, Cristina began to experience troubling symptoms, including a mass growing on her neck, followed by hoarseness in her voice and difficulty in swallowing. She was diagnosed with an inflamed mass in her neck and needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse.
Fortunately, our medical partner, World Surgical Foundation Philippines, is helping Cristina receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo surgery on February 22nd at Our Lady of Peace Hospital. Her treatment will cost $1,323, and she and her family need help to raise money for this life-changing care.
“We are very thankful to WSFP and WATSI for this surgery. Our mom will be able to continue with her life without difficulty speaking and swallowing her food,” Cristina’s daughter shared.
