Geoffrey underwent prostate removal surgery.

Geoffrey’s original surgery date was delayed a month because he had some problems with his blood pressure that needed to be resolved first. He has now had his prostatectomy and has been discharged to continue his recovery at home. He is already feeling much better and is looking forward to complete recovery so he can get back to farming and tending his coffee plants.

“I am feeling much better and have faith that I will be able to work again like I used to,” says Geoffrey. “I give many thanks to those helping me and will ask God to bless them.”

Geoffrey is a 64-year-old farmer from Uganda. Geoffrey is a husband, father, and grandfather. He loves to tell stories to his young grandchildren about hunting and fishing when he was younger. In his free time, he also enjoys visiting with friends and listening to medical programs on the radio.

Recently, Geoffrey’s prostate gland began to swell and the pain has rapidly increased. After visiting our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, it was recommended that his prostate be removed to decrease his pain and restore full mobility.

Geoffrey is now scheduled to undergo prostate removal surgery on June 3. Although Geoffrey was able to contribute $7 to the cost of his procedure, he is still in need of $314 to cover the rest of the expenses.

“Please tell the donors thank you from me,” says Geoffrey. “I will ask God to bless them in all that they do.”
