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.
