Faith is a woman from Kenya. She is a housewife, while her husband is a security guard. They have three children and live in rural eastern Kenya.
Three years ago, Faith suffered a toothache that left her with a small swelling on her left mandible. She visited different local hospitals, where she was given medication with no proper diagnosis. In February 2018, Faith and her husband came to our medical partner’s care center, and she underwent a minor surgery to remove the swelling. However, the surgeon noted that the benign cyst was not fully removed. If not treated fully, Faith risks developing further complications.
Fortunately, Faith will undergo a mandibulectomy on August 21. Now, she needs help raising $1,500 to fund surgery.
Faith says, “My hope is to have the swell subdued and the risk of further complications reduced.”
