Peace is a middle aged woman from Uganda. For the past five years, Peace has been complaining of painful chest lipomas that have affected her daily life. She has not been to any hospital previously owing to lack of finances.
When she came to the hospital, she was diagnosed with epigastric lipoma, and surgery was recommended to improve her quality of life. Unfortunately, she risked missing the surgery due to lack of funding.
She is a mother of five children and practices subsistence farming to make ends meet. Her husband trades in coffee to provide for their children’s school fees. The family is not able to raise funds needed for surgery and appeals for assistance.
On January 22nd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Peace needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Peace says, “I hope my condition will be improved after my surgery.
