Eden is an Eritrean refugee from Kenya. She has been living in Kenya since 2015. It took her two months to cross into Kenya through Sudan.
Eden has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Without treatment, the cancer may spread to other organs. A mastectomy, a surgery to remove breast tissue, has been suggested to rid her body of breast cancer and to prevent the cancer from metastasizing.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $816 to cover the cost of a mastectomy for Eden. The procedure is scheduled to take place on October 31. After treatment, Eden will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Eden says, “I want to be treated and be cancer-free. I am confident I will manage to fight off the condition.”
