Meet Rosie, a 35-year-old woman from the Philippines. Rosie enjoys cooking and singing, and often sings at weddings and funerals. Our medical partner, International Care Ministries (ICM), says, “Rosie loves to work together with her husband who is a gospel minister and she loves to serve people.”
Due to a mass on her right breast, “Rosie occasionally experiences muscle pain on the entire right side of her shoulder, chest, and back, which requires her to rest a minimum of two hours throughout the day,” ICM reports.
“It is a discomfort since there is additional itching at the site of the mass and under her right upper arm; these symptoms bother her as it causes her lack of sleep, which makes her very tired for the next day’s tasks.”
Rosie needs a lumpectomy to remove the mass on her breast. This procedure costs $612, and will remove all abnormal tissue form her breast. ICM says, “The treatment will give Rosie the freedom to do what she wants, especially in serving the church and the community as a whole. “
ICM adds, “Rosie is looking forward to being free of pain and discomfort so she can perform her best as a mother and a wife.”
“I am looking forward to being free of this condition I have,” Rosie shares. “I know that without it I can serve my family and our church at my full capacity.”
