about Melienne's recovery.

April 13, 2017

Melienne is a 35-year-old mother from Haiti. She has a nine-year-old daughter and formerly worked as a street merchant. Melienne loves to sing and listen to music. Love songs and gospel are her favorite genres.

In January 2017, Melienne went to the hospital to inspect a mass that had been growing in her breast. There, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and referred to St. Luc Family Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. To ensure she is healthy enough to care and provide for her daughter, Melienne has decided to undergo a mastectomy with reconstruction surgery.

On April 13, Melienne will undergo surgery at St. Luc Family Hospital. Our medical partner, Innovating Health International, is asking for $1,285 to cover the cost of her treatment.

With surgery, Melienne will be fully healthy and present in her daughter’s life!
