Rosa Surgery Fund, Peru


Fundraising Campaign Description

End Date: Jul 1, 2017 12:00 AM

Volunteers Around the World is raising funds to cover the brain surgery of Rosa Capccha from Zurite, Peru. It is our goal to raise at least $15,000 to cover Rosa's complex surgery, hospitalization, radiotherapy and recovery. Read Rosa's story below!

Rosa is a 35 years old woman from Zurite, Peru, located about one hour outside of Cusco, Peru. Rosa has one 9 year old boy named Danilo. She is a housewife who dedicates her time to take care of his son, her house and her little guynnea pigs.

On May 2016, she started noticing one of her eyes showed a different shape. She didn´t know what it was. Almost a year later, Rosa went to a VAW Mobile Clinic at Yanama and our Dr. John Huamanquispe noticed the shape of her eye asked her to get a tomography. It showed a "Cavernous sinus meningioma" a slow-growing tumor that is causing loss of vision in her left eye; but most important is putting her life in risk because she has a ver high probability of having a brain stroke (cerebral thrombosis).

Unfortunately, Rosa is not able to afford the surgery. And since it is a very complex procedure and long recovery we ask you to please consider donating so that Rosa can live many years more.

Any amount will help!
