A few years ago, we could only dream of being able to save cancer patients. Today, thanks to your High Fives! our medical center in Ntamugenga is treating more and more complicated cases. If we don’t help these people, no one will.
Joanna’s parents went to several hospitals before coming here. There is only one oncologist in all of North Kivu, so getting an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan is incredibly difficult. Doctors were helpless at the sight of a few-month-old girl with a large mass on her cheek. Her mother was determined to find a doctor who could provide real help and finally turned to us.
We did an ultrasound and a biopsy, sister Agnieszka brought in an oncologist for a consultation and we made the decision to operate. Little Joanna has the surgery behind her. The biopsy showed that the change is not cancerous, allowing her family to breathe a sigh of relief. The swelling visible on the photo taken a few days ago is getting smaller every day, while Joanna’s smile and playful attitude are growing by the day.
These are the types of things we can accomplish with your High Fives.
