Zafisa's Emergency Surgeries

Zafisa, a loving sister, mother, and grandmother, is currently facing urgent health problems. Six months ago, she suffered an unfortunate fall at a commercial plaza in Colombia, resulting in a hip fracture. Though she underwent surgery to repair her hip, she continues to experience severe pain leaving her in a wheelchair unable to walk. Seeking further medical opinions it was concluded that a second surgery is necessary to repair the malpractice she underwent in the first surgery.

In the midst of this complication, Zafisa began displaying concerning symptoms. Upon further evaluation, they detected a tumor on her left kidney. The doctor urges that the removal of the tumor take precedence over the hip surgery as she is at a high risk of losing her kidney and already has a medical history of cancer in her stomach from four years ago.

We are pressed for time because the size of the tumor has been increasing and at this moment is atrophying the function of the left kidney. Unfortunately, the surgeon will not operate until the surgery is paid in full; leaving us with no other option but to ask for your help. All donations are greatly appreciated as it will get us closer to providing Zafisa with the medical attention she requires.

Thank you for your support and kindness during this difficult time.
