Thanks for donating to <%= @name %> on Watsi. We’re sorry for the unusual delay in sending you a treatment update.

There are a few reasons why some updates take an extra long time. Oftentimes, patients travel long distances and wait for appointments with highly sought-after doctors, and unpredictable events like washed out roads can delay a patient’s care.

We’re constantly working to reduce the time until donors receive an update, and we appreciate your patience. Your support makes it possible for patients to access the healthcare they deserve.

The doctors at Living Hope Haiti, the medical organization that coordinated Fedeline's care, report that this was a life-saving amputation. ...

Fedeline is a single mother of a little girl who has a malignant tumor on her arm. Several doctors have agreed that it is likely a sarcoma (serious cancer). They need to do a biopsy to confirm that it’s cancerous, and if it is, amputate her arm below the elbow to save her life.

Before she got sick, Fedeline worked as a retailer, selling items from a stand in the market. This allowed her to make enough money to support her daughter. Fedeline says she is scared of what cancer may mean for her future and her ability to work. Her doctors add that the sarcoma has already, “destroyed the bone growth in the area, and it will only be a short time until she loses the ability to move her fingers and hold her hand up.”

Fedeline’s biopsy will cost $90, her surgery will cost $350, and her post-op medication will cost $35. $475 is a prohibitive price tag for a regular Haitian citizen like Fedeline, and we hope to raise the funds needed to cover the cost of her care so she has a chance at a healthy life.
