Manita received a mastectomy and chemotherapy to treat her breast cancer.

Manita’s treatment was a success!

Manita told us, “I want to say thanks to all the persons that helped me during that period, thank you because you covered all the expenses for me. I had much pain before, but after the surgery I felt better, sometimes I feel some pain very low but it is not the same as before, I am doing okay. Thanks to all the doctors, Watsi and the nurses for my treatment. I would not have the money to pay for the treatment if you did not help me through this program. You have done a very important thing for me, congratulations to you all and may the Lord bless you.”

Meet Manita, a courageous 46-year-old mother of two from Haiti, where she and her husband are teachers. Some time ago Manita noticed a lump in her breast, which was initially diagnosed as a cyst. She was given medication and sent home. The lump grew very big, very quickly. After a sonography and biospy, Manita was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Manita shares, “I wasn’t thinking it would be something so bad. I was not thinking it could be a cancer; I don’t know what to do.” Our partners at Project Medishare in Haiti are optimistic that surgery and chemotherapy will help Manita to become well again: “The surgery will remove the infected tissues of the breast and treat it, and then she will require chemotherapy sessions to complete the treatment; then she will be able to save her life.”

Unfortunately, since becoming ill, Manita has had to discontinue working at the primary school where she was employed because the pain in her breast and armpit prevents her from lifting her hand to write on the board for her students. A physician at Project Medishare notes, “Manita loves her children and her family; she said she would love to finish with the treatment, go back to work and raise some money to make a small shop to sell things as food and drinks.”

For $1,500, we can fund the treatment Manita needs to beat breast cancer.
