Grace is a peasant farmer from Uganda who has been having a progressively increasing occipital neck mass for the past two months. The painful mass makes her days and nights very uncomfortable and she is not able to attend to her daily duties. She opted to come to the hospital after the pain persisted. Following a scan, she was diagnosed with the occipital lipoma and a mass excision recommended.
Grace is a peasant farmer while her husband operates a small butchery. Their combined income is negligible to afford the cost of surgery and meet other daily needs. She also cares for her elderly mother making it harder for her to afford the cost for all her demands. Grace appeals for help.
Grace traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 12, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Grace needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Grace says, “I hope to continue with cultivation after surgery.”
