Breast Cancer Treatment for Clarisse Issa
Clarisse is a single mother of 3 children aged 40, suffering from stage 4 breast cancer which has already affected her two breasts and migrated to her lungs.
She had been diagnosed since November 2018, but not followed up normally due to financial constraints.
Before her illness, Clarisse was a temporary teacher in one of the primary schools in Yaounde, Cameroon where she earned $70 (33,000 francs) a month as salary (Job that she lost due to the deterioration of her state of health).
Managing daily life, which was not always easy when she had a job, has therefore become practically impossible for her because of her poor and still deteriorating state of health.
She lives in a single room with her 3 children sharing a mattress placed on the floor as a bed. At Clarisse's, for a long time now, eating to one's fill has become a luxury that they can no longer afford, let alone fruit medical bills.
It is for this reason that her medical follow-up was marked by repeated inconsistency thus leading to the accelerated deterioration of her state of health, to the point where the cancer has now reached the second breast and the lungs.
The offensive odors coming from the already shattered breast makes her feel constantly nauseated turning precious actions like eating and breathing into a nightmare, weakening her even more.
So far, Clarisse has only had support from the Dare to live With Anjoh Foundation and from a minority of her family to lead her to her first successful chemotherapy if we may call it so.
Unfortunately for Clarisse, the foundation cannot fully sponsor her treatment and it is for this reason that we are reaching out and asking for a helping hand by presenting you this case which we consider urgent.
We believe that you could give her, through your generous contributions a chance at survival thanks to the generous hearts of those who will be able to come to her rescue as quickly as possible.
Attached to this request are photocopies of her medical journey so far and photos of her in her current state.
We apologize in advance for the exposure of her Nudity but for the moment, Clarisse does not tolerate clothes on her due to the pain she feels when they touch her breasts. However, she has given her consent.
Thank you for reading her story, and we would love to have the opportunity to share more details with you as need be.
