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.
