Juan underwent successful prostate surgery.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, reports that Juan received prostate surgery in January and is recuperating well. This surgery was the first step in treating his cancer, and Juan is now preparing for additional treatment. He is grateful for Wuqu’ Kawoq’s support of his case, made possible through Watsi funding.

Juan says, “God bless the Wuqu’ Kawoq family for all the work you have done at my side due to which I am still alive. If it were not for Wuqu’ Kawoq, I might not be alive.”

Juan is a 78-year-old man from Guatemala. He lives with his wife in a rural part of the country, where he has worked for decades in agriculture. Recently, Juan was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is a very common and very treatable form of cancer. In its early stages, symptoms include painful urination and discomfort in the groin area. Without treatment, it spread to other parts of the body. Recently, Juan has been unable to work because of his symptoms.

Doctors have scheduled a surgery on January 31 to remove the cancer. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $910 to fund his surgery.

“I will fight until I’m able to get better,” says Juan.
