Marianna is a single mother of three children, including Modest (17), who is sponsored through the Kumbo Site in Cameroon.
Chalice Critical Needs - Surgery for Marianna in Kumbo, CameroonMarianna is HIV positive and has been in and out of hospital for the past few years. During a recent hospital visit for treatment, she complained of severe pains in her reproductive organs. Following an examination by the gynecologist, she was diagnosed with stage two cervical cancer with immediate surgery recommended to prevent the cancer from spreading. Total cost for the surgery, post-op care, medications, and nutritional supplements, is $2,605.

Since being abandoned by her husband, Marianna has been forced to beg in an effort to provide for her family. She is so very grateful that her daughter was accepted into the Chalice sponsorship program. Sadly, Marianna has no means of paying for these medical costs and without financial assistance, she has no chance of surviving and being able to continue to try and provide for her family.

Our Chalice Sponsor Site Director has come to Chalice with an urgent request to provide the funding needed for Marianna to have the surgery and cover expenses to help her heal.

Funding Request: $2,605.00
Critical Need: CKK1217
