Glimpses of Hope

Here is the latest update from our friends at Hope Medical Center in Guinea, West Africa.

This past May, we met Alimou Camara. Alimou was struggling to survive with a 6 1/2 pound tumor from his chin, and no viable option here in Guinea.

Over the past years, our colleges Jon Erickson and Moise Mamy have helped many tumor patients by helping them get to the Mercy Ship for treatment. This year, a team from the Mercy Ship came to Hope Clinic in May to screen potential patients. Alimou traveled all the way from Conakry (18+ hours) in order to have the doctors evaluate his tumor. He was scheduled for surgery shortly thereafter.

The linked article, written by a surgeon on the Mercy Ship, describes Alimou’s journey.
