Katushabe is a 35-year-old woman from Uganda. She is married and has four children, all of whom are in high school.
Two years ago, Katushabe noticed a swelling in her neck that has progressively increased in size. She was recently diagnosed with a multinodular goiter and requires a thyroidectomy in order to best combat her condition. Without surgical intervention, it will become extremely difficult for Katushabe to swallow and breathe.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $240 to fund Katushabe’s treatment. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 27 and, once completed, will hopefully greatly improve Katushabe’s quality of life.
“I cannot afford surgery without your help. I hope to regain my normal appearance of the neck and have peace of mind,” says Katushabe.
