Virimayi is one of the patients we are supporting through the Sponsor a Cancer Patient Campaign 2014. He suffered from a cancerous jaw mass which was on his face. This was successfully removed in a huge operation in May 2013 at Karanda Mission Hospital. The Elizabeth Chanakira Cancer Trust (ECCT) was able to assist with hospital costs for his operation, through the support of those who donated to us in 2013. We thank those who continue to support us. To read the details of his last operation, please click here now.

This week our prayers are with Virimayi who is journeying back to Karanda Mission Hospital to have a bone grafting procedure to start repairing the part of his jaw which he lost due to his cancer, within the next few months. We are assisting Virimayi with the cost of this procedure which will be USD $315. Again, we thank those who donated to the ECCT in 2013 and who have made it possible for us to help Virimayi.

We will keep you posted on his progress. Please join us in saying prayers for him and his family. Virimayi will also need assistance after the  procedure with doctor’s consultation costs for check ups. To assist Virimayi, please click here now.
