Danie is a hardworking 46-year-old dressmaker from Haiti who is also the sole breadwinner and caretaker for her husband and their child.

When Danie noticed an itching sensation on her breast and painful periods, she went to see a doctor. After a biopsy, she discovered she had breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy to remove the affected breast. However, she still needs chemotherapy to prevent the cancer from returning.

“If she does not obtain the sessions she has high chance to experience resurgence of the cancer,” our medical partner, Project Medishare, explains. “Treatment will allow her to save her life and provide chances for her to resume her activities and rejoin her family.”

“I would love to recover from my bad health situation and get back to normal,” she says. “If I could I would spend everything I have to get healthy and rejoin my family.” But at $1500, chemotherapy costs are simply more than Danie can afford to pay.

Let’s help Danie get better and stay cancer-free!

Dar

Dar is a 21-day-old baby girl who lives with her parents and her brother in a village in the border area of Karen State in Burma. Dar was born at home with the help of a traditional birth attendant. Two days after she was born, Dar's mother noticed a problem when Dar was passing stool. She told Dar’s father to call a medic from the clinic to their home. The medic realized that Dar was born with a anorectal condition and shared with Dar’s mother that baby Dar would urgently need surgery to receive a colostomy. Dar’s parents are subsistence farmers who grow rice and raise chickens. They also forage for vegetables in the jungle and go fishing when they want to eat fish. To purchase staples that they cannot produce such as salt and oil, Dar’s father works as an agricultural day labourer during the rainy season. However, since the rainy season has not yet begun, they currently have no income. However, their daily needs are fulfilled from living off the land. If they are sick and need to seek treatment, they go to the free clinic in their village run by Burma Medical Association (BMA). Fortunately our medical partner Burma Children Medical Fund is helping Dar's family access the medical care she needs. They need help raising $1,500 to fund the treatment she needs. “We had to borrow money so far for Dar’s treatment and my husband cannot work,” said Dar’s mother. “I want to send my baby to school until she graduates so that she can become educated. I want this for her future because I only went to school until grade four. After she completes her studies, she can become whatever she wants one day.”
