Jane received a hysterectomy to treat her uterine fibroids.

Jane’s procedure was a success! Her doctors were able to remove her uterus, stopping the heavy bleeding she was experiencing.

“I am very happy! I am grateful to the donors who paid for my surgery,” Jane tells us. “I plan to expand my small grocery business so that I can increase my income and be able to support my children and educate them: I have no husband and my children depend on me.”

“If I can only get well again! I hope to expand my small grocery business so that I can support my children better; I am their only hope,” shares Jane, a 39-year-old woman from Kenya. Jane is a single mother and sells vegetables at the roadside near her home to support her two children.

Since May 2014, Jane has been experiencing continuous and irregular uterine bleeding caused by noncancerous tumors, or fibroids, in Jane’s uterus. Due to the bleeding masses in her uterus, Jane is now at risk for severe anemia. The fibroids will continue to grow, affecting surrounding organs.

Doctors at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), have recommended a total abdominal hysterectomy, a surgery Jane is unable to afford. We can fund a successful surgery for $790. “We expect after a total abdominal hysterectomy, Jane will recover completely,” describes AMHF doctors. “She will be relieved from the excessive bleeding and the growth of the fibroids will be stopped.”

Let’s help Jane move forward with her life!
