Kishichi underwent surgery to remove a mass from her pelvic region.

Kishichi had a successful total abdominal hysterectomy and laporatomy treatment due to a pelvic mass. Initially, the gynecologist thought it was an ovarian tumor but during the operation it became clear that it was a pelvic mass that was affecting her health. The mass was successfully removed and Kishichi is doing well and will have an improved quality of life.

Kishichi shared, “Thank you so much donors for being there for me. I do not know where I would be had you never intervened. I will always say thank you and pray for you. I hope to continue with farming once I recover.”

Kishichi is an 80-year-old mother to one child. She earns a living from her banana and coffee plantation which she operates together with her husband. She grows small beans, groundnuts, and maize to eat but sells the surplus to earn a living.

Kishichi is experiencing abdominal pain and feels a hard palpable mass in her pelvic region. This has negatively impacted her quality of life. If she is not treated, her symptoms may worsen or she may develop cancer of the ovary. Fortunately, doctors at our medical parter, African Mission Healthcare, can help. They are requesting $253 to fund the cost of her surgery. Now, Kishichi needs your help to fund the cost of this treatment.

Kishichi shared, “I hope to be relieved from this condition after my surgery and I will continue with farming once I recover.”
