Agripino is a 24-year-old man living in Guatemala. He is from a rural farming village where he works in the fields, although this has become difficult to do under his condition.
“Agripino came to us after several months of abdominal pain and distention,” our partners at Wuqu’ Kawog tell us. “We performed imaging studies which confirmed a tumor in his left kidney, consistent with kidney cancer. If not treated, this tumor will continue to grow and may even metastasize.”
It will take $1,475 to fund the chemotherapy necessary to battle Agripino’s cancer. Since his cancer has not yet progressed to an advanced stage and hasn’t metastasized, our partner’s expect the chemotherapy to be a cure! Our partners tell us that Agripino is “upbeat and optimistic, and looking forward to beating this thing” – lets come together and make that happen!
