Mary is a milk vendor from Kenya. She is a mother of four. The family lives in their ancestral home in Kitale, Western Kenya.
Mary 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 Mary. The procedure is scheduled to take place on March 26. After treatment, Mary will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Mary says, “I am confident that soon I will be treated and heal. I want to be there for my children.”
