Margaret is a farmer from Kenya. She is a mother of three children. She lost her husband in 2013.
Margaret 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 Margaret. The procedure is scheduled to take place on April 3. After treatment, Margaret will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Margaret says, “My hope is to be treated and continue bringing up my children. I hope that soon I will be treated and resume my normal duties.”
