“I am Larissa, age 21. I was diagnosed with Burkitts lymphoma at the age of 12 in Mbingo Baptist Hospital.
The disease journey began when I had a right jaw swelling. My parents took me to the hospital. The doctor operated the mass and one month the swelling reoccurred and was far bigger than the first one.
We were referred to Mbingo Baptist Hospital where the above diagnoses was made. I received Chemotherapy which lasted 4 months. And I received my full course of treatment and have never had the mass again.
The pictures you see is before and after my treatment. I want the whole world to know that cancer can be treated in Africa if diagnosed early.
God has help her through her treatment and she is a 7 years survival hoping to become a medical Doctor #No more pain NO more loss for children with #cancer
