Meet Nancy, a 16-year-old girl from Kenya. For the past nine months, Nancy has lived with a soft tissue mass on her left hand.
Nancy graduated from primary school last year and just entered high school. This can be a difficult transition for any teenager, but Nancy’s condition makes her especially self-conscious. She has tried to hide the mass to avoid embarrassment. The swelling also limits Nancy’s ability to use her hand and causes discomfort.
Nancy will go through a biopsy during her stay at Watsi medical partner, CURE International. Based on the results of the biopsy, doctors will be able to decide on what the best form of treatment will be for her. Nancy says, “I feel this hand has denied me good health. I want good health back.” Let’s help Nancy so that she can focus more on school and friends!
