Zipporah underwent a cyst removal on her liver.

Zipporah’s treatment was successful. Zipporah who was on a wheelchair during the profile interview walked with me to a lawn outside the ward to take her post-op photos. Esther, Zipporah’s mother, is hopeful that the results of the biopsy taken will be favorable.

“When she was admitted, my daughter could barely walk and her stomach overstretched the t-shirt she is now wearing. I am grateful to God that she can walk again and the swelling on her stomach has now gone down as you can see with the loose-fitting t-shirt. I hope she is well and can report back to school in the new year.” Zipporah’s mother remarked with a glimmer of hope in her eyes.

Zipporah is a young girl aged eight and a half years from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. She is the last born in a family of four children. Her mother is a single mother who does casual work as a waitress in a small hotel near their home.

Zipporah has been a very jolly and active child, until about one month ago when she reported to her mother that she was having abdominal pains and her abdomen was swelling. The condition was making it difficult for Zipporah to play with other children. She was even brought to our office in a wheelchair as she feels pain when standing.

She came to our partner, Nazareth Hospital, and an ultrasound scan was done which showed a well-defined liver mass. The family was sent for a CT scan and it also showed a cystic liver mass. The surgeon recommends a laparotomy, but her mother was not in a position to meet the bill for this surgery. If not treated Zipporah will continue to experience pain.
