Anne-Marie is a 58-year-old woman from Haiti. She lives with her cousin. To support herself, Anne-Marie is a street merchant, selling products such as clothing and shoes. When not working, she enjoys going to church, where she is very involved.
In September 2016, Anne-Marie discovered a small mass in her breast. As the mass increased in size, Anne-Marie visited her doctor, who then referred her to St. Luc Family Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. There, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She began chemotherapy in February 2017.
After four sessions of chemotherapy, Anne-Marie is ready to continue to the next step of her treatment. On May 10, Anne-Marie will undergo a mastectomy. Our medical partner, Innovating Health International, is asking for $1,085 to cover the cost of her operation.
Anne-Marie is looking forward to feeling like herself again and is very excited to get back to being active and healthy.
