Shallon is a peasant farmer from Uganda who has a left breast lump that had been persistently painful for the past two years. She worried it would be cancerous and was diagnosed with left breast fibroadenoma and an excision surgery was recommended.
Shallon has a younger sister who is in school. Unfortunately, she was not able to proceed with her high school education after her father’s demise. To earn a living, Shallon practices small scale farming and basket weaving. She is not able to afford the cost of surgery and appeals for help.
Shallon traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 22nd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Shallon needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Shallon says, “I will be grateful having achieved my surgery under your support.”
