Ensitehwa is an elderly man from Uganda. He came to the hospital with a swollen mass on his neck that he has had for four years. The painful swelling limits his ability to turn his neck fully and causes him to have a headache. He is also not able to lie on his back nor is he able to do physically strenuous work for a long time.
He has not been to any hospital previously for the treatment, but it is recently more painful. He opted to come to Nyakibale Hospital and was diagnosed with a posterior lipoma that doctors want to remove. With the surgery, he will be able to lead a normal life and his persistent pain will be over.
Ensitehwa is a 62-year-old father of four. Two of his children are still in school while the other two married. Together with his wife, they tend to their banana and coffee plantation to make ends meet, especially to earn money for school fees for their children. He needs financial support for the planned surgery and appeals for help.
On October 13th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Ensitehwa needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure. Ensitehwa shared, “I hope to get a new lifestyle and regain my health once this operation goes on successfully.”
