Critical Surgery for a Rwandan Woman

Summary

Desange, a 42 year old mother of one, is in critical need of surgery to remove a tumor from one of her Fallopian tubes. She is in constant pain and has increasing difficulty walking. She and her husband have saved $200 that will help, but they need an additional $800 to cover the cost of the surgery. She needs the surgery as soon as possible to avoid further complications. Your gift would be life changing for Desange and her family.
