Kenganzi underwent a cystectomy.

Kenganzi underwent a cystectomy treatment for her ovarian mass. The surgery relieved her from pain and reduces the chance of the mass becoming cancerous.

Kenganzi shared: “I couldn’t manage the cost of this surgery on my own. May the Lord bless you abundantly and I hope to continue with farming.”

Kenganzi is a mother of three from western Uganda. Her children all attend school. Currently, she works on her banana plantation, while her husband works as a bodaboda moto driver earning a limited income to support their family.

For the past four years, Kenganzi has unknowingly struggled with an ovarian cyst. Initially, she began to feel a palpable mass on her right lower abdominal section. Kenganzi also experienced pain when lying on her right side, and whenever she strained during farming, she would feel it more severely. This significantly affected her productivity on the farm. As the pain became more severe, Kenganzi decided to come to our Medical Partner’s Care Center Nyakibale Hospital for review. Doctors had her undergo a pelvic scan, and the results showed that she had an ovarian cyst requiring a cystectomy surgery to remove it. However, Kenganzi and her family are not able to afford the cost of this procedure and appeal for financial support.

Kenganzi will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. Fortunately, she is scheduled to undergo a cystectomy on April 23rd. African Mission Healthcare is requesting $220 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. Once recovered, she will be free of pain and will be able to return to farming on the plantation.

Kenganzi shared, “My desire is to get the surgery to correct my condition. With full recovery, I will be more productive on the farm to help raise our three children with better quality of life.”
