about Katushabe's recovery.

June 23, 2017

Katushabe is a 39-year-old teacher from Uganda. She has four children of her own and cares for her deceased brother’s six children.

One year ago, Katushabe noticed a swelling in her right armpit. She initially went to a clinic and was temporarily relieved of her discomfort, however the swelling is now progressively increasing in size. Moreover, the pain has intensified and has radiated to her breast. Katushabe was diagnosed with a lipoma, and, if not treated, the lipoma will continue to grow and further impede her ability to teach.

On June 27, Katushabe will undergo surgery to remove the mass. The $187 requested by our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, will cover the full cost of treatment, including labs, medication, supplies, and physician time. Katushabe’s procedure, once completed, will hopefully relieve her of her pain and allow her to live more comfortably.
