Grace is a single mother from Kenya. She is a middle-aged woman from the central region of Kenya. She earns a living picking tea.
Grace 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 Grace. The procedure is scheduled to take place on September 3. After treatment, Grace will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Grace says, “I wish to be treated and fight off this cancer. I want to join other people who have fought against cancer and want to campaign on its awareness.”
