I appeal to you to help me raise money to have this tumor removed successfully.



My name is Linda Joy Odipo. I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids in the month of September. All my life since puberty I've had to deal with and survive very painful period cramps. For the longest time, I did not think it was a serious issue and would take strong drugs to numb the pain and get by each month. In this particular month, I woke up in the middle of the night to paralyzing pain which led me to rush into hospital to find out what was the cause. I was sent for a scan which revealed that the tumor is the size of a five month old fetus. The doctors were able to give me painkillers which was a temporary solution to the problem. I was further advised that I need surgery as soon as possible as the longer it takes the more damage the tumor will do to my uterus. I don't have children yet and I really, really would love to have kids of my own. This condition is what is standing between me and my ability to have children. I don't have a good job that can allow me to fund myself in order to get the procedure done and my family cannot raise the amount required on their own either. Please help me in this journey so that I can be able to hold a child in my arms one day and feel what it's like to be called Mom. I am scheduled for surgery in the month of February 2017 and the cost of the surgery is Kshs. 400,000. Thank you and God bless you for taking the time to read my story.
