Willison is a farmer from Uganda and arrived at Nyakibale Hospital with an anterior abdominal lipoma which he has struggled with for over a year. He is unable to sleep on the affected side and complains of a burning sensation around the lipoma area.
Willison had been to a different hospital previously, but could not receive surgery due to financial limitations. He opted to come to Nyakibale Hospital after hearing of the surgical program and possible support. If treated, Willison will be out of constant pain and discomfort.
He is a father of five and works in his small piece of land to make a living. Together with the wife, they have to save every penny they earn for their children’s education and daily sustenance. This leaves them with very little savings. Willison is not able to afford the cost of surgery and appeals for financial assistance.
On April 25th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Willison needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Willison says “I hope to regain my strength again after my surgery to continue with cultivation and provide for my family.”
