Wislande is a 48-year-old woman from Haiti. Wislande has five children. Her family lives in Port-au-Prince. Wislande used to work as a street merchant before she became ill. Wislande enjoys attending church and participating in the activities with her church.
At our medical partner’s care center, Wislande was diagnosed with breast cancer. She will have to undergo a double mastectomy, since the cancer has now spread to her right breast.
As a result of her illness, Wislande cannot wash her clothes or clean the house. She also cannot work and support herself.
Fortunately, in May 2017, Wislande started chemotherapy. After four sessions of chemotherapy, Wislande will undergo a double mastectomy on August 26. Our medical partner, Innovating Health International, is requesting $1,085 to cover Wislande’s procedure. This will cover the full cost of treatment, including labs, medication, physician and nurse time, radiology, supplies, and travel expenses.
