Young mother of three can’t afford life-saving surgery
Updated: Mar 21
A single and unemployed mother of three, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, can’t afford to pay for the $100,000 surgery needed to save her life.
Like thousands of other Bahamians, hairstylist Tiffany Burrows’ pockets were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in unprecedented restrictions across The Bahamas. For months, during the state of emergency, beauty salons were shut down and unable to serve clients.
With no steady income, the self-employed hairstylist struggles to support her three children ages 6, 4 and 2.
Then, one month ago, life dealt the 36-year-old mother another devastating blow. Burrows was diagnosed with cancer.
Doctors discovered a spinal mass, a Retroperitional mass involving her L3 vertebrae and left ureter.
Burrows, who hasn’t worked in over a year, urgently needs to travel to the United States to have surgery immediately to remove the mass.
However, the young mother can’t afford the major medical bills associated with the live-saving procedure.
Her family is now pleading with others who can assist to make a donation, no matter how small, to help pay for her surgery and save her life.
Burrows, who has stage four cancer, is in need of a Pet scan, Immunohistology test, diagnostic services, medication, a back brace and ongoing treatment.
