Victoria’s face tumor caused her discomfort for a full five years. When she was out in public, strangers would look away to avoid her. The growth of the tumor was directly correlated to her inability to obtain the necessary medical attention. There was a sense that change was hopeless because of this. A three-day journey proved difficult for her, but she was determined to reach the Africa Mercy for the life-changing surgery that she knew would be possible there. Donating to Mercy Ships is an immediate way to improve people’s lives.
