Gaudy is a 45-year-old farmer living with her husband. Gaudy and her husband - who is also a farmer - have five children, one of whom is a teacher, while another is a nurse. Because her family didn’t have the money to pay her school fees, Gaudy was only able to study through year six in primary school.
For two years, Gaudy has been experiencing lower abdominal pain, backache, and other worrisome symptoms. She has been diagnosed with premalignant cervical lesions, and will need to undergo a hysterectomy to remove her uterus.
Because of their family’s limited income, Gaudy and her husband are unable to cover the costs of Gaudy’s treatment. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Gaudy’s surgery, which will take place on May 10th at the Karoli Lwanga Hospital In Nyakibale. Once she has recovered, Gaudy will be able to resume her daily activities, finally free of pain.
Gaudy says: “I hope to get much better after my surgery and to regain my health once my surgery is successfully done.”
