Sarah is a student from Kenya. Her parents are farmers. They plant maize in a small farm.
Two years ago, Sarah began to experience troubling symptoms, including weight gain, dizziness, and a neck swelling. She was diagnosed with a multi-nodular goiter. She needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Sarah receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on June 12 at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $641, and she and her family need help raising money.
Sarah says, “I want to be treated so that I can join my friends in school. I also look forward to good results after full recovery.”
