Molly underwent a mass removal procedure.

The growth on Molly’s sternum was excised. Fortunately, nothing more serious than a cyst was found. She is now back in her village recuperating. Soon, she will be able to return to work pain-free.

“The help from the donors has been a blessing,” says Molly. “I struggle to support my family and children alone and not much is left over at the end of the month. I thought I would have to live with this pain.”

Molly is a strong, hard-working woman. She works as a farmer and has raised seven children on her own.

Several months ago, Molly noticed a growth on her chest. Over time, it has gotten larger, causing her pain and discomfort and making it difficult to work. Her doctors diagnosed her with a sebaceous cyst and advised her to have it removed.

Fortunately, Molly will be receiving treatment at our medical partner’s hospital, Bwindi Community Hospital, on January 14. The procedure costs $196. Molly will be contributing $4 of her own money.

Once the mass is removed, Molly will be able to support her family, attend church, and socialize with friends free of pain. She expresses her gratitude, saying, “I want to tell the donors thank you so much for helping needy people. I am very grateful.”
