Tabitha is a casual laborer from Kenya. She is a single parent to two children. Tabitha washes clothes and cleans houses in order to earn a living and educate her children.
Tabitha has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Without treatment, the cancer may spread to other organs. A mastectomy, a surgery to remove breast tissue, has been suggested to rid her body of breast cancer and to prevent the cancer from metastasizing.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $816 to cover the cost of a mastectomy for Tabitha. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 23. After treatment, Tabitha will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Tabitha says, “My hope is to be treated and raise my children. I wish that my living conditions will improve with time.”
