Sweet underwent a CT scan.

The result confirmed the diagnosis of sacrococcygeal teratoma. Her condition is treatable, and she is scheduled for surgery in September.

Sweet’s mother said, “I used to worry for my daughter and worry that my daughter will not be able to have surgery but now I am happy that she is going to have surgery soon. I hope and wish the best that she will have successful surgery.”

Sweet is a two-month-old baby girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandparents, uncle, and two aunts. They live on the family farm in the Kyaw Tha Lit Kho village.

Sweet was born at home with the help of a traditional birthing assistant. Shortly after birth, Sweet’s mother noticed that she had a mass near her tailbone. They visited a clinic and were referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. Currently, the mass is growing at a steady rate.

Doctors want Sweet to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $469 to cover the cost of Sweet’s CT scan and care, scheduled for July 19.

Naw Aye

Naw Aye is a 4-year-old primary school student from Thailand. She lives with her family in a refugee camp in northern Thailand. In 2003, her parents fled to the camp due to the unstable situations between the local armed group and the government army near their village in Burma. Their family receives 2,169 baht (approx. 72 USD) as part of their camp food support from an organization called The Border Consortium. Despite receiving food support as well as free basic health care and education in the camp, Naw Aye’s father has had to earn additional income to cover their expanses. Therefore, he has opened a small shop in front of their home, through which he earns 1,000 baht (approx. 33 USD) in a month. On 29 June 2020, Naw Aye was playing outside when she fell down and landed on her left elbow. Immediately after Naw Aye’s father took her to the camp's clinic. The doctor examined Naw Aye and suspected she had broken her elbow but would need to receive an x-ray to confirm the diagnosis. She received an x-ray that confirmed the fracture and was referred to our partner Burma Children Medical Fund in order to access treatment. Currently, Naw Aye's left arm is in pain and she cannot bend it or lift anything. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Naw Aye will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for July 10th and will cost $1,500. After she receives surgery, she will be no longer be in pain and she will be able to use her left arm again. Once she returns home she will be able to continue her studies. Naw Aye's father shared, "Naw Aye loves to play outside. She also likes to color and draw when she comes home from school. When she gets bored of playing outside with her friends and drawing, she likes to watch cartoon clips."
