Dominga is a 55-year-old woman with long-standing diabetes, which has been well controlled. Unfortunately, Dominga recently suffered a cut on the bottom of her foot that became infected and developed into a large diabetic foot ulcer. Without treatment for the ulcer, Dominga could lose her foot.
Luckily, Dominga’s condition is curable. With antibiotics and removal of the damaged tissue, Dominga’s infection should clear up, allowing the ulcer to heal and preventing a foot amputation.
Doctors at Wuqu’ Kawoq tell us that Dominga has been a strong supporter and advocate for their rural diabetes program for more than five years. Let’s help her get the medical treatment she needs to continue helping others get access to care!
