Dominga is a cancer survivor who is one surgery away from being on a path toward a normal and healthy life.

After being diagnosed with stomach cancer, Dominga received surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy through Wuqu’ Kawok’s Complex Medical Care program. The surgery required a colostomy (diversion of her intestines into a bag). Now that she is cancer free, Dominga is a candidate for a reverse colostomy. This surgery will enable her to process food normally again and become more mobile and physically active.
