Veneranda is a 70-year-old wife and mother who together with her husband has six children and several grandchildren. She raises cows with her husband to make ends meet.
For the past six months, Veneranda has been experiencing bleeding, backaches and lower back pain. She was referred to our medical partner’s care center for examination and treatment. She has been diagnosed with premalignant cervical lesions and surgery was recommended.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Veneranda to receive treatment. On September 15th, she will undergo a hysterectomy at AMH’s care center. Successful treatment will reduce the chances of cancer metastasis, and she hopes to get well and resume her duties at home after full recovery. Now, she needs help raising $219 to fund her procedure and care.
Veneranda shared, “I think the only chance for me to get relieved from this pain is by surgery and with your support, I hope it will be possible.”
