Peris is a farmer from Kenya. She is married and a mother of a three young children. Peris and husband farm together in order to provide for their children.
Peris has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Without treatment, the cancer may spread to other organs. A mastectomy, a surgery to remove breast tissue, has been suggested to rid her body of breast cancer and to prevent the cancer from metastasizing.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $816 to cover the cost of a mastectomy for Peris. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 22. After treatment, Peris will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Peris says, “My prayer is that soon I will be treated and able to raise my children. I am really hopeful in God.”
