Silienne did not receive surgery as planned.

Our medical partner, Project Medishare, explains that Silienne was scheduled to come for her first chemotherapy session to treat breast cancer. However, she didn’t make her appointment, and our partner has been unable to reach her.

Though rare, some patients on Watsi choose not to receive treatment, despite receiving funds. If Silienne chooses to receive treatment, Project Medishare can re-submit her case to Watsi.

Silienne is a mother of six, who lives in the Haitian countryside where her husband is a small-scale farmer.

“Silienne started noticing that her breast was changing shape and was getting smaller than the normal size, like her breast tissue was getting dehydrated. Then she decided to go see a physician very soon in her locality. When she went there, she was transferred to Port-Au-Prince very fast and she came to our hospital, as she heard that we have cancer treatment programs,” shares our partner Project Medishare. “Silienne explains that her breast is very painful and itches much. She cannot sleep enough at night and she is always thinking about what can happen if she doesn’t receive appropriate treatments.”

The doctors have diagnosed Silienne with breast cancer. They say, “Silienne needs surgical intervention to remove the affected breast that can cause the invasion of the cancer to to rest of her body. After the surgery, she will have to come back to the hospital after 30 days in order to complete the treatment; she will receive several chemotherapy sessions.The treatment will save her life and she will be able to go back her activities, but with some restrictions.”

Surgery is planned in September, and chemotherapy in October. The total cost of the life-saving treatment is $1500.
