Cecilia had a hysterectomy to treat her uterine fibroids.

“Now I am strong and I can take care of my child, and possibly be able to start a clothes shop,” Cecilia tells us, full of excitement.

“Cecilia successfully underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy and is recovering well,” reports our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “She is now free from the heavy bleeding, pain and anaemia. Cecilia will now be able to take care of her son and work at her dream of starting a clothes shop.”

“I hope to get well and be able to care of my son and meet my dream of starting a shop for selling clothes,” expresses Cecilia, a 38-year-old mother in Kenya.

“Cecilia is a beautiful single lady with only one child, a son, who is 17 years old. She sells clothes by the roadside near her home to earn money to meet her family’s basic needs,” shares African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), our medical partner in Kenya. For about a year, Cecilia has experienced heavy bleeding, pain, and anemia as side-effects of uterine fibroids—noncancerous growths common to women in child-bearing years. “If not treated, Cecilia will continue to bleed and the fibroids will keep growing, affecting surrounding body organs.
