Our patients here at Hopital de Guinebor ll (“G2”) in Chad come from all over Chad and Cameroon. They come from many different ethnic groups and cultures. Most are Muslims from North Chad.
Achta, this little three-year-old emaciated girl, presented with this huge intra-abdominal mass. Her parents said they noticed it five months ago. It is more likely that is was there at birth as I’m almost certain that it’s a neuroblastoma.
It took almost three hours of hard work in the OR to remove this awful tumor that has been growing all her life and robbing her of normal health and life.
I’m still trying to understand why so many of our patients are brought in only when they’re at death’s door.
This family obviously loves Achta and came up with the surgical fee right away. This family doesn’t seem poor. In respect to our surgical team, not a bad investment of time and effort, wouldn’t you say? The family will hear of Jesus, His love for them and His plan to save them. No charge.
Blessings to you in Christ’s name,
