Florence underwent a curative laparotomy.

Florence had a successful surgery to remove her uterine mass and ovarian cyst. Florence recovered well and was discharged home with minimal pain. She is grateful for the support offered.

Florence says: “May God bless you abundantly and I will continue with my usual work. I am grateful as I could not have afforded this surgery on my own.”

Florence is a 46-year-old woman from Southwestern Uganda. She is separated from her husband and shared proudly that she earned a certificate in secretarial studies earlier in life. She had been working at a high school for 31 years, but since the beginning of the pandemic, she has worked as a farmer to earn a living.

For two years, Florence has been experiencing lower abdominal pain and discomfort. She is unable to stand or bend over for long periods of time or sleep on the right side of her body, and she experiences difficulty passing stool.

Florence has sought treatment in the past but, unfortunately, she could not afford the cost. Fortunately, she recently visited our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), for further examination. After a scan, she was diagnosed with a right adnexal mass and surgery was recommended so that Florence can heal and make a full recovery. On October 6th, Florence will undergo a curative laparotomy at AMH’s care center and now, she needs help raising $242 to cover the cost of her procedure and care.

Florence shared, “I wish to see my life relieved from this pain so that I can regain my health and continue with my farming and secretarial duties.”
