Kesline is a 41-year-old mother of two who lives in Haiti. She likes going to church and is a strong believer in God. Although Kesline used to work as a street merchant, the interference of her illness with the heavy lifting required by her trade has forced her to stop.
Two years ago, Kesline felt a small mass in her right breast. After a multitude of tests and exams, she was eventually diagnosed with breast cancer. Ever since, Kesline has undergone 12 sessions of chemotherapy and has experienced extensive discomfort.
Kesline has spent all of her life’s savings on medical fees, tests, exams, and trips to different hospitals. Our medical partner, Innovating Health International, is therefore requesting $1,085 to fund a mastectomy for Kesline, which is scheduled to take place on June 14. Kesline is excited for this next step, hoping that, after surgery, she will have more energy, become more independent, and be able to take care of herself.
