Priscilla received treatment for her uterine fibroids.

“Priscilla had a successful total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) surgery,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “She is now free from the pain, bleeding, and the risk of anemia. Priscilla will be able to regain her social life and also fully take care of her family.”

“I want to say how happy I am for this help from Watsi,” says Priscilla. “My life will get back to normal and I can’t wait to visit and socialize with my friends and family.”

'’This condition is making life very difficult for me. I can’t go to visit friends and I am even unable to attend church,” shares Priscilla. “I really hope to get help from Watsi and that the surgery will be successful so that I can be able to regain my normal life back.”

50-year-old Priscilla and her husband have three children who are all in school. Her husband runs a small shop in Kenya, and Priscilla and her family rely on his business to cater to all their family needs. However, their modest business struggles to raise enough money for Priscilla’s treatment.

“Priscilla is experiencing heavy bleeding and lower abdominal pain,” explains our medical partner African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “ Priscilla started experiencing this condition late last year. The symptoms got worse and she had to come to the hospital. A pelvis scan was ordered and showed she has uterine fibroids.”

The noncancerous growths in Priscilla’s uterus have hindered Priscilla’s social and personal life. “If not treated, Priscilla will continue to suffer from this condition,” continues AMHF. “The growing fibroids may affect the surrounding body organs and the bleeding may also lead to anaemia.”

With $790, AMHF expects Priscilla to fully recover after a hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus. She will be free from the pain, bleeding, and the risk of anaemia; furthermore, Priscilla will be able to regain her social life and fully integrate with her family.
