Pam is a 65-year-old man from Nigeria who makes his living as a farmer. He has eight children, five of whom are still in school.

However, the development of a mass on his neck three years ago, and the consequential increased heart rate, have “affected [Pam’s] farming drastically, as his condition does not allow him to carry out his farming activities as he used to do,” explains our medical partner, Hope for West Africa.

As the sole provider of the family, Pam worries about his condition, which has affected his only source of livelihood. “I need help with this surgery,” says Pam. “If I am helped, I will be very happy. Treatment will enable me to go back to farming actively, it will help me provide for my family again, and it will also allow me to live normal, happy life.”

With $1,500, surgeons will remove the mass from Pam’s neck. This funding will go towards not only the surgery, but also preoperative lab tests, postoperative physiotherapy, and follow up appointments. After the surgery, Pam will no longer be bothered by a swollen neck and his heart beat will return to normal.
