Tukov is 33 years old and is the elder sister of two of our sponsored children at the Chalice Kumbo (Cameroon) Sponsor Site.
Chalice Critical Needs - Medical Expenses for Tukov in Kumbo, CameroonShe has been struggling with breathing and fatigue for the past year and a half. She has been placed on various treatments but has not responded well to any of the treatments.

Earlier this year, Tukov went to St. Elizabeth's Catholic General Hospital in Kumbo for a very detailed examination. The conclusion, following the tests, is that Tukov is suffering from severe mitral valve regurgitation (abnormal reversal of blood flow from the left ventricle to the left atrium). In this condition she is a high risk for heart failure and requires immediate surgery.

The cost for the procedure, including diagnosis, pre-surgical care, open heart surgery, post-surgical care and medication is $11,025. There is no medical coverage and the family (whose father is unable to work due to having his leg amputated), is in no position to pay these costs for this operation needed to save their daughter's life.

The family has turned to our sponsor site for help and our site director has come to Chalice with an urgent request for assistance to help the family cover these costs and restore their daughter to good health.
