Hellen is a farmer from Kenya. She has seven children.
Ten years ago, Hellen began to experience troubling symptoms, including coughs, difficulty breathing, and increased sweating. She was diagnosed with a toxic goiter. She needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Hellen receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on May 15 at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $641, and she and her family need help raising money.
Hellen says, “I am asking for your support so that I can get medication as well as surgery. This condition is making me weaker each day. My children still need my assistance.”
