Catherine is a trader from Kenya. She is a mother of six children.
Catherine 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 Catherine. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 21. After treatment, Catherine will hopefully return to a cancer-free life.
Catherine says, “My prayer is to be treated and discharged from the hospital. I want to fight off this cancer.”
