Rebcca did not receive treatment as expected.

Unfortunately, Rebcca’s pre-operative assessment did not show the extent of the Wilms tumor in her left kidney. During surgery, the surgeon realized that the tumor had a very significant intracaval extension. The surgery was abandoned, and a biopsy was taken and sent to oncologists for chemotherapy. After chemotherapy, she may be re-scheduled for surgery.

We are committed to reporting all outcomes transparently—even the ones we wish were different. Thank you so much for your support of Rebcca and her family.

Rebcca is a girl from Ethiopia. She lives with her mother and two younger twin siblings. Unfortunately, her father passed away from cancer eight months ago. Her mother teaches in a private school and is having difficulty supporting the family.

Rebcca has been experiencing chronic abdominal pain and discomfort. A CT scan showed she has a Wilms tumor, a type of cancer that starts in the kidneys. Rebcca has already undergone surgery, and the tumor resection was successful. She will also need chemotherapy.

Now, Rebcca needs to undergo another surgery, an abdominal resection, to treat her condition. Surgery is scheduled for August 28 and will cost $1,500.

Rebcca’s mother says, “We moved from the city to countryside. Now I am a teacher and I am raising my children on my monthly salary alone. We are financially struggling.”
