Meet Philicia, a brave 35-year-old woman from Kenya. Philicia has uterine fibroids, a condition that causes infertility, pain, and heavy bleeding that could lead to severe anemia.

Philicia’s condition requires a total abdominal hysterectomy. She has been married for three years, but has no children. Her husband told the doctors that “it’s better not to have children but have my wife in good health.”
