Hope For Women in Crisis and one of their young child mothers has benefited greatly from this spirit of giving.

Five days ago, Grace was taken to International Hospital Kampala where she was examined by Dr. Ben, a wonderful caring reconstruction surgeon, and taken to the theatre (operating room) that evening to remove the dead tissue and a tumor in her right breast.
|Outside Dr. Ben's office ... Grace love to mug for photos!|
Grace responded so well to the surgery that removed the sizable tumor that she was discharged from the hospital the day after. The wound left from the surgery was to be cleaned and dressed every day before she returned for review by Dr. Ben on Tuesday, March 21st.
Susan, the nurse who does independent contract work for Next Generation Ministries, supervised the cleaning and wound redressing each day at the Jinja clinic associated with International Hospital Kampala. The wound was reducing in size and the tissue was looking healthy each day.
|A sensitive moment after seeing Dr. Ben|
It was evident that the medical crisis had subsided. Grace is still a teenager ... really a child who has a child ... and she seems to be loving this attention and the belief that her body is going to return to normal.
|The tumor that was removed|
There is a possibility that the wound could heal on its own without having stitches. Dr. Ben requested we return to see him with Grace in a week.
|The remaining wound|
Your generosity has been outstanding. Any funds that are received over and above this medical need will be deposited in the Next Generation Ministries Medical account.
We will keep you updated. For those of you who can manage medical realities, we have posted a photo of the tumor that was removed and the wound that is remaining.
