Elise is a 55-year-old woman from Masayiti, a village in Malawi. Elise lives with her devoted husband, who is a groundnut and soy farmer. Together, they have four children and eleven grandchildren. Elise has a small business selling freezes made from frozen water and fruit juice. Elise likes to spend time with her kids and chat with friends.
Three weeks ago, Elise started experiencing bleeding and discomfort in a private area. She learned that she has cervical cancer and needs a hysterectomy to remove all or part of her uterus.
Fortunately, with the help of our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, Elise is scheduled to receive her surgery on February 23. Now, she needs help to pay for this $650 procedure.
Elise says, “I will be happy to return to my business and no longer be scared of my cancer.”
