Stephen received treatment for his inguinal hernia.
Doctors successfully patched the bulged, weak area of Stephen’s groin to free him from the pain and discomfort he was experiencing. Our medical partner, the Kellermann Foundation, explains, “When he left the hospital, Stephen had only minor pain from the surgery and was looking forward to begin renovations on his house.”
The Kellerman Foundation continues, “Stephen was excited to be able to have hernia surgery after so many years of pain. He thanked all the donors and asks God to bless them with abundance.”
The Kellermann staff explains that, unfortunately, Stephen left the hospital before his discharge photo was taken. He lives very far from the hospital and has not yet come back for his followup appointment when a second photo could be taken.

“Stephen is a 78-year-old retired truck driver who enjoys life,” our medical partner, the Kellermann Foundation, tells us. “Stephen and his wife have 11 children and 70 grandchildren–he has trouble remembering all of their names!”
“Stephen has suffered from a hernia for six years,” the Kellermann Foundation explains. A hernia occurs when tissue pushes through a weak point in the abdominal muscles. Specifically, Stephen’s hernia is located in the inguinal, or groin, region.
“His hernia has caused him pain and discomfort and has prevented him from doing repairs on his house,” the Kellermann Foundation continues. “His income is lower now that he is retired and he has not been able to afford surgery.”
Stephen’s hernia repair costs $227 and will increase his quality of life, allowing him “to do repairs on his home and work without pain.”
“Thank you so much to the people helping me,” Stephen shares. “I pray that God blesses them and brings them abundance!”
