“Renette was diagnosed with breast cancer years ago when she felt a bump on her breast that caused severe pain,” explains our medical partner, Project Medishare (PM).
Renette is a 29-year-old woman from Haiti. “She is interested in cosmetology, and hopes to return to high school before pursuing a vocational education,” continues PM.
Renette’s current focus, however, is recovering from breast cancer. “She is waiting to go to the Dominican Republic to receive radiation therapy and complete her breast cancer treatment,” PM reports.
Watsi previously funded surgery for the removal of Renette’s tumor, but funds are still needed to continue treatment.
$1500 will cover the remaining radiation treatment, as well as transportation, housing, and a visa to enter the Dominican Republic for treatment.
