Mary is a woman from Kenya. She is a mother of four and used to work as a farmer. Due to recent health problems, she has had to stop working, so her husband is the only one providing for the family.
For three years, Mary has been experiencing leg and spinal pain. Painkillers have not worked, and she has difficulty walking. She visited our medical partner’s care center, where she underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with cervical myelopathy, a compression of the spinal cord. She needs to undergo a spinal fusion surgery, scheduled for July 23.
Now, Mary’s family needs help funding this $1,500 procedure.
Mary says, “My wish is to be able to walk upright again and with no pain. I want to be there for my family.”
