Jane received life-saving breast cancer treatment.

“Jane’s mastectomy was successful,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “She has started chemotherapy and soon her doctors hope to give her a clean bill of health. Jane is very happy that she got timely treatment. She has started slowing resuming work on her business and hopes to see it grow.”

“Thank you for helping me,” Jane shares. “I would not have been able to pay for both my surgery and chemotherapy. God bless everyone that funded my care and their families.”

Meet Jane, a 45-year-old woman from Kenya. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), tells us, “Jane is a joyful mother of five children. Two of her children are in school, while three have cleared high school and are in casual employment. Jane works as a clothes seller specializing in selling sheets and bedding.”

AMHF explains, “Jane found a lump in her left breast during a self-examination three months ago. Since then she has been referred to three different hospitals in search of treatment. ”

AMHF determined that the lump is cancerous, and Jane thus requires an immediate mastectomy to remove the cancerous tissue. Following surgery Jane will also need chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.

Even before getting sick, AMHF reports, “Jane’s business was very small and barely enabled her to pay rent, buy food and educate her children.” Now that she is ill, Jane has not been able to work often and has spent all of her savings on doctors’ visits. Thus, she cannot afford the lifesaving care she needs.

With $740 in funding, Jane will receive the full scope of treatment she requires.

Jane shares, “The breast is not painful but I know cancer is dangerous and it should be treated fast. I really hope to get well so that I can concentrate on my business and work with my older children to make our family better.’’

AMHF adds, “Jane’s children are very determined to see their mother get the treatment she needs.”
