Susan received a hysterectomy to treat uterine fibroids.

“My children look up to me for support. I really hope to get well soon so that my life can get back to normal.” says Susan, a 39-year-old widowed mother of two from Kenya. “If I get well, I hope to be able to start a small business to sustain my family.”

Susan works hard on her small farm to provide for her family, but she dreams of a better life. She is currently in a great deal of pain caused by uterine fibroids. If left untreated, the uterine fibroids will grow and Susan will continue to experience pain, bleeding and anemia.
