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.
Wuqu’ Kawoq’s Medical Director says, “Dominga is an amazingly strong woman who shouldered through a really tough chemotherapy and surgery regimen without a single complication or complaint. She is delighted to have survived cancer and is really excited about the possibility of no longer needing a colostomy.”
