Oriana is a 70-year-old mother of five kids. She lives in a town in the southern province of Haiti.
About a year ago, while laying down, Oriana felt something hard in her breast. She went to the hospital, and the doctor sent her to get a mammogram in Port-au-Prince, the capital. She went to the hospital, met with the doctors there, and had a biopsy. The results showed that it was breast cancer.
Oriana was referred to our medical partner’s care center, St. Luc Family Hospital. She has had four sessions of chemotherapy. Now, our medical partner, Innovating Health International, is requesting $1,085 to fund surgery to remove the tumor in Oriana’s breast. The operation is scheduled to take place on July 29.
With this surgery, Oriana will likely regain her previous quality of life. She is looking forward to becoming more involved in her church.
