Haswell is an energetic 72-year-old farmer from a village located in the Central Region of Malawi. In his 72 years, Haswell and his wife have been blessed with six children and thirteen grandchildren. He spends much of his day working on building projects. In his down time, his favorite thing to do is talk with his wife, who he affectionately refers to as “my one beloved.”
Three weeks ago, Haswell started experiencing urinary dysfunction. These troubling symptoms brought Haswell to our medical partner’s care center, Nkhoma Hospital, where he was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate. If left untreated, this condition can lead to urinary retention, bladder infections or stones, or kidney damage.
Physicians have recommended a minimally invasive procedure known as a prostate resection, in which part of the prostate will be removed. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, has requested $726 to fund Haswell’s procedure, scheduled for February 2.
Haswell is looking forward to his surgery, saying, “I am happy to have surgery. I will have peace of mind”.
