Dorah is a 40-year-old house helper and a single mother of two children. She has been raising the kids on her own and works several kilometers from where she lives. She and her children live with her elderly mother.
Since June 2019, Dorah has been experiencing spotting and pain. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $794 to fund Dorah’s surgery. On July 28th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH’s care center. Once recovered, Dorah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Dorah shared, “the news about cancer is not easy to take in. It has disoriented me and I feel confused about what will happen to my young family. I need this treatment to be able to get well and avoid death.”
