Rossett underwent mass removal surgery.

Rossett’s surgery to remove the large mass on her left elbow went well. She is completing recovery at home. Her recovery will take several weeks, but when she is completely healed, she should be able to go back to work and have full movement of her arm again.

“I feel so much better already,” said Rossett after surgery. “I thank all the donors for making this surgery possible. It means I will be able to work again and help support my family. I am so grateful.”

Rossett is a 29-year-old mother of three. Rossett and her husband work as small farmers in Uganda to support their family.

About one year ago, Rossett developed a growth on her left elbow. It has now grown so large and painful that Rossett is unable to move her arm or work on her farm.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, has arranged for Rossett to have mass removal surgery on June 12. Although Rossett was able to contribute $7 to the cost of her treatment, she is still in need of $196 to cover the rest of the expenses.

Rossett shares that she is looking forward to going back to work and supporting her family. “I thank all the donors for helping me with my treatment,” she says.
