Jane received a total abdominal hysterectomy to address endometrial cancer.

“I had lost hope in life but Watsi has changed all that,” says Jane.

Jane’s doctor informs us that, “Jane successfully underwent a TAH and is recovering well. She is now free from the discomfort of the swollen abdomen and the cancer spread has been halted. Jane will now be able to work so that she can take care of herself.”

“I really hope that Watsi will help save my life,” says Jane. “If I get well, I will look for a stable job and be able to support myself.” This is Jane, a 48-year-old woman from Kenya.

Our partners at the African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF) have discovered that Jane has endometrial cancer, a cancer that begins in the uterus, and an ovarian cyst. “Jane has been suffering from this condition for more than two years now,” AMHF explains.

She is at risk of her cancer spreading, but our medical partners believe they can bring that spread to a halt and “she will recover and be able to work so that she can take care of herself.”

Making her living from odd jobs like washing her neighbors clothes makes it difficult for Jane to be able to afford any treatment.

For only $790, Jane will receive a total abdominal hysterectomy to remove the cancer. Let’s help her get this life-saving treatment so she will be relieved of pain and discomfort!

Aidah

Aidah is a small-scale farmer and a mother of six. Aidah's husband works around their village getting daily jobs as much as he can. They own a four-room semi-permanent house for shelter. Aidah's first born is now 38 years old and married, and her youngest is 18 years old and close to completing school. Aidah and her family have received aid from a church fund to help meet their daily needs. Since October 2021, Aidah has been experiencing lower abdominal pains. She was initially treated for gastric ulcers and typhoid, but there was no significant improvement. Aidah later developed further complications and rushed to a doctor who did tests and ultimately recommended a surgery that Aidah could not afford. This condition has prevented Aidah from working on her farm. Aidah traveled to our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital, and has been diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. If not treated, Aidah risks developing cancer of the cervix that could affect her life in the long run. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $319 to fund Aidah's surgery. On June 7th, Aidah will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Aidah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Aidah shared, “I pray for a successful surgery so that I may live a normal life once again. I hope to resume farming in order to continue taking good care of my family.”
