Elizabeth is a cosmetics vendor from Kenya. She separated with her husband a few years ago. She lives in a rental house in Nairobi.
Elizabeth has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Without treatment, the cancer may spread to other organs. A mastectomy, a surgery to remove breast tissue, has been suggested to rid her body of breast cancer and to prevent the cancer from metastasizing.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $816 to cover the cost of a mastectomy for Elizabeth. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 27. After treatment, Elizabeth will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Elizabeth says, “My hope and prayer is to fight off this cancer and lead a healthy life.”
