Than Aye is a 45-year-old single woman from Burma. She lives with her friend in Kaw Bay Village, Kawkareik Township, Karen State, Burma.
Four months ago, Than Aye has been experiencing cramps and pain in her lower abdomen. She has been diagnosed with uterine myoma. She has been advised to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus and cervix. If left untreated, Than Aye’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Fortunately, Than Aye is scheduled to undergo her hysterectomy on October 2. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. Once recovered, she will no longer experiences cramps and pain, and she will be able to return to her work.
