Angellah is a 24-year-old student at university studying clinical medicine because she is passionate about helping the sick. She is the third born child in a family of five children, including three brothers and one sister. Two of her brothers are still in school and one works as a farmer. Her sister is studying towards a certificate in nursing and her parents work as farmers.
Six months ago, Angellah started experiencing backaches and abdominal discomfort. She could feel a mass on the left side of her abdomen. She took painkillers and tried local herbs, but her condition did not improve. Finally, she had a scan done and was diagnosed with a left adnexal cystic mass.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Angellah receive treatment. On September 16th, she will undergo a cystectomy at AMH’s care center. Now, she needs help raising $220 to cover the cost of her procedure and care.
Angellah shared, “I hope this pain will surely go and I will get healed after surgery so that I continue well with my studies.”
