Amos underwent removal of a large mass on the back of his neck.

Amos had a successful surgery with our medical partner at Rushoroza Hospital. The swollen mass on his neck was removed successfully. Amos shared with us that he’s relieved he will no longer be worried about further growth and its complications. He hopes to get back to his farming and feels a new hope for living an improved and more productive life.

Amos says, “Many thanks to the donor program for funding my surgery; I was very much worried about the growing mass and yet I could not afford the surgery. Thank you very much and may God bless you.”

Amos is a small scale farmer. After completing secondary school, Amos started practicing farming and when he married, his wife joined him on the farm. He is now a father of three children with the eldest in primary school. Their family leads a modest lifestyle.

Four years ago, Amos developed a small painless neck swelling. Over time, the swell has been increasing in size and has had him worried about the complications that might result from it. With the swell increasing, he is not able to turn his neck easily and cannot carry a heavy load on his head. He visited Rushoroza Hospital and was diagnosed with a lipoma that needs excision. He appeals for financial assistance to fund his treatment.

On November 19th”, surgeons will remove the mass. Our medical care partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $145 to fund this procedure.

Amos says, “I am currently looking abnormal with the neck swelling and I need help. I hope to look normal again and continue with farming as soon as possible.”
