Unfortunately, the type of intensive care required for her to undergo the surgery is not in place in her country. Her case has been accepted at Hopital Bichat-Claude Bernard, in Paris where she would receive both a prosthetic mitral valve and a pacemaker. The total cost of her medical evacuation was approximately $62,000, an amount almost impossible to raise.
Very recently, we have been fortunate to find a new hospital in Milan, Italy, that offered to do her surgery at a much lower cost: 17,000Euros, which is approximately 20,000$.
Fatou and her husband are both unemployed. Every day that goes by, Fatou wonders if her children will grow up without their mother. Please let us help Fatou so she can have the chance to see her children grow old.
