Rechel received a hysterectomy to treat cervical cancer.

After a successful operation, Rechel is no longer in pain or, at risk of her cancer spreading. She is slowly regaining strength and will soon resume selling clothing to support her family.

Rechel is a hardworking woman from Kenya who is doing her best to take care of her three children after being widowed recently. She used to sell second hand clothing to make a living, but has had to stop due to cervical cancer.

Rechel’s condition gives her terrible lower abdominal pain, bleeding, and weight loss. If she is not treated immediately, the cancer will spread, eventually causing organ failure.

For $885, we can help Rechel receive a total abdominal hysterectomy, which her doctors expect will prevent the cancer from spreading and let her live a normal life. Rechel “hopes to regain her strength and resume her business.” Let’s help Rechel recover so that she can continue to support her family!
