My name is Linda Tusiime. I am a survivor of Breast Cancer. When I was first diagnosed, the prognosis changed my life for it exposed me to the privilege of ignorance. Learning that I may have to undergo a mastectomy made me realize how much I identified my feminity, my dignity, my worth as a woman with my body.
Luckily I did not have to undergo a mastectomy, but in my interaction with women who had the procedure done to save their lives I realised that not only is breast reconstruction an option a majority of women in Uganda cannot afford, there is also no known local provider in the country to make and provide breast prostheses, a fact that makes the lives of ordinary women post breast cancer very difficult. I'd like us to help. Help raise money to support the Uganda Cancer Institute in acquiring the much needed equipment to locally make these prostheses. Women deserve to have options post breast cancer treatment, let's give them that.
