Edita underwent surgery to live pain-free.

Edita had a successful surgery to remove the cyst on her right ovary. She was discharged home from the hospital in good health and expected to recover fully and be free from abdominal pain that had been bothering her.

Edita says: “I was really in deep pain and even thought I would die if I was not operated. I thank the donors for funding my surgery.”

Edita is a hardworking Ugandan nurse and wife. She currently runs a small drug shop as a nurse assistance with the support of her husband, who runs a neighboring store.

Edita visited Nyakibale Hospital with severe abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and other serious issues. She first went to a clinic where she was then recommended to get another opinion.

After further review by a doctor, Edita had been recommended a curative surgery for a newly discovered cyst, for which the doctor expects a complete recovery. She is unable to fund the cost of her surgery and therefore she is requesting support.

Edita says “With your support, I will be treated. I know the pain I have will go by Gods mercy.”
