Isabel received surgery to treat cervical cancer.

“Isabel came to us for a pap smear during one of our cervical cancer screening programs,” explains Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK). “Naturally, she was extremely worried when she discovered her lab results came back positive for early stage cervical cancer. Thankfully, early stage cervical cancer is very curable, and after further investigation we understood we could remove the infected area surgically, and she would not need to undergo chemotherapy.”

“Due to the support from our Watsi donors, Isabel was able to receive the surgery she needed to remove the cancerous area,” continues WK. “The surgery went extremely well, and we are now thrilled to report she is officially cancer free!”

“I am relieved this is all over. Thank you so much for the help and the support. I look forward to spending more time with my family,” shares Isabel.

Meet Isabel, a 49-year-old woman from Guatemala. She and her husband work mostly in agriculture to provide for their six children. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, tells us, “her main priority is being healthy so that she can take care of her children.”

Isabel was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. WK writes, “this was picked up when she came to one of our cervical cancer screening programs. She was asymptomatic (no pain or bleeding), although our nurse was concerned when performing the screening test, as the cervix did look abnormal. The screening tests came back positive for an early stage cervical cancer. In many ways this is good news, because Isabel is totally curable at this stage.”

With $1,475, Isabel will undergo chemotherapy treatment. “This early stage cervical cancer is almost certainly curable. We anticipate that Isabel will do really well through treatment and that she will go on to be strong and healthy for many years, taking care of her family and children,” continues Wuqu’ Kawoq.

Let’s pitch in and keep this mother strong!
