Brian underwent a mass excision surgery.

Brian had a successful surgery at Rushoroza Hospital. The swollen mass on his right hand was removed successfully and doctors believe he should no longer be worried about further growth. Brian will now proceed with his day-to-day duties, especially farming, more comfortably and he is feeling hopeful to live an improved and more productive life.

Brian says, “I thank the donor program very much for giving me a chance to look and feel normal once again through surgery. My family and I are very happy. May you continue supporting and restoring the lives of the needy.”

Brian is a 20-year-old small-scale farmer. His parents work as farmers and he has five siblings, some of whom are still in school. He’s started working as a small-scale farming to help make ends meet.

Six years ago, Brian developed a small painless swelling on his right wrist. Whenever he works for long periods of time, he is unable to use his wrist. He is worried about his condition and how it will impact him if it continues to worsen.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Brian to receive treatment. After examination at AMH’s care center, surgery is recommended. On October 16th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Brian needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.

Brian shared, “I hope that the surgery will help remove the cyst and allow me to use my hand with ease from now on.”
