Doreen is a 45-year-old woman from Uganda. She has three children, with whom she shares a room in her parent's home. Doreen farms, focusing her efforts on cultivating crops for domestic consumption. In an effort to support her family, she also manages a small tearoom. For two months, Doreen has been experiencing continuous bleeding in a sensitive area. This condition, accompanied by a two year history of abnormal bleeding episodes, lower abdominal pain, backache, and unusual discharge, has taken a toll on her health. Her symptoms have not improved, despite Doreen's visits to the doctor. Initially, she was misdiagnosed as having a urinary tract infection. However, Doreen sought the expertise of a specialist when her symptoms persisted, and it was determined that she suffers from adenomyosis: a gynecologic condition that causes endometrial tissue in the lining of the uterus to grow into the muscular wall of the uterus. She will need to undergo surgery in order to resolve her condition. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Doreen's surgery. On August 8th, she will undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale. Once she has recovered, Doreen will be able to resume her daily activities free of symptoms. Doreen says: “I am the breadwinner to my family but with such poor health, I am limited, because I have no energy to work. But I hope with your support, I will be treated and will surely get better.”
