Trufehna is a farmer from Kenya with two children aged 25 and 13 respectively. She takes care of two cows for her daily upkeep. Trufehna lost her dear husband in the year 2007 after a short illness. After her husband’s death, their farm was taken by his relatives hence she had to return to her parents.
Since nine years ago, Trufehna began to experience troubling symptoms, including sore throat, pain and a neck selling. She was diagnosed with an euthyroid goiter. She needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Trufehna receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on March 9th at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $641, and she and her family need help raising money.
Trufehna says, “Help me get treated so that I can carry on with life and support my daughters. I believe that this condition cannot shatter my hope and I will be back to my normal life.”
