Eladio received surgery to remove his lipoma.

According to our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, “Already, Eladio feels less pain and is more comfortable when moving around the house. When the incision is healed, he’s looking forward to being able to get back to work in the fields.”

Eladio tells us, “I was getting really frustrated with this chronic painful problem, and getting depressed about not having a solution. Thanks for helping me get it taken care of!”

“Eladio has a very large lipoma on his back that has been growing for many years,” Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK) tells us about this 50-year-old, K’iche’-speaking gentleman from Guatemala. “This causes a lot of pain and interferes with his abilty to work in his fields. He’s spent a lot of money and time over the years trying to get a surgery, but he’s never been successful.”

Eladio earns a living for his family (including a few small ones) through agricultural work - he grows corn and beans and other vegetables for local markets. Eladio tells us that the WK team that right now his goal is “just to be without pain and to be able to take care of my family.”

“He’s excited to have connected with our team, and hopeful that we will be able to help him,” WK writes. $360 will cover the cost of removing the lipoma and help Eladio get back to work pain-free. WK is ready to do their part to help Eladio get back in shape. Let’s make their efforts worthwhile.
