Friday is a 31-year-old small-scale farmer and a single mother of three children, having separated from her husband in 2015. Her firstborn is now 12 years old and in primary school class seven, and her second and last born are 9 and 6 years old respectively. She proudly shared that her children are all in school and that they live together with her parents. She works hard as a farmer to make ends meet and pay for her children’s school fees. In her free time, Friday enjoys making hand crafts like handmade mats.
For the last four months, Friday has been experiencing discomfort in her chest area due to a mass that has been increasing in size. Upon seeking care with our medical partner, she was diagnosed with a mass on her right breast that needs to be removed.
Friday traveled to our medical partner’s care center hoping to receive treatment. On January 13th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Friday needs help raising $145 to fund this procedure.
Friday shared, “I will resume farming once I recover. I appreciate any support you can provide.”
