Rosemary is a 38-year-old small scale tea farmer. She is married and has four children. Together, she and her husband tend to a half-acre piece of land.
In June 2020, while pregnant, Rosemary began experiencing troubling symptoms. She was able to have her baby and has now been diagnosed with cervical cancer. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Rosemary receive treatment. On September 24th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH’s care center. Once recovered, Rosemary will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her risk of cancer spreading with will be greatly reduced. Now, she needs help raising $1,260 to fund her procedure and care.
Rosemary shared, “the cancer has put my life under threat. I almost lost my little baby because of the disease. I need this surgery to raise my kids and be well in health.”
