Keremensia is a peasant farmer and mother of 7 from Uganda who came to our facility with complaints of bleeding and lower abdominal pains that have persisted for the past one year. Due to the pain, she is not able to attend to her farming work often.
She has been diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma, which requires urgent surgery before it metastasizes. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. She, however, lacks money for the surgery. Keremensia is a peasant farmer while her husband is a catechist.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Keremensia’s surgery. On January 9th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Keremensia will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Keremensia says, “I only pray to God that I get a new life after my surgery.”
