RETINOBLASTOMA






 This little child had a fast growing mass in the left orbit. We did an enucleation and the pathology showed retinoblastoma. The child is about to start chemotherapy and later, perhaps, radiation as well. Charlotte Jacobs, MD, at Stanford University, has been helping with post surgical treatment recommendation.


TRAM FLAP FOR FUNGATING BREAST CANCER

This delightful lady had a fungating breast cancer. She received 3 courses of chemotherapy followed by radical mastectomy. Ten days after surgery, Dr. Mishack Akunekwe and I performed a TRAM Flap. She is discharged home and doing well. Of course, she probably is not cured but her quality of life is astonishingly better. She will no longer have the smelly mass attached to her and be a pariah in her village.

SONOSITE M-TURBO

We desperately need a new US machine at NCH. Our current machine is dead, The Sonosite M-Turbo seems to be the best choice for us. We have raised about $2000. It will cost $10,000 with probes. I am hoping to take this on my Aug trip. Please help! There are about 100 visits to the site daily. If everyone contributes $100 we can get it.
