Marvin is an elderly gentleman who has severe prostatic hypertrophy, leading to urine pressure backing up into and damaging his kidneys. As a temporary fix, he has a catheter in place to relieve the pressure. This is not a permanent solution. It greatly impacts his quality of life and puts him at risk of a severe infection from the catheter.

Fortunately, a simple surgery can completely fix Marvin’s problem for good. With a transurethral resection of the prostate, Marvin will be able to resume functioning normally.

Marvin is widowed and lives with his eldest son. The family is poor and has trouble managing his medical care financially. Let’s help Marvin get the treatment he needs to get healthy and get on with his life.
