Meet Thet, a 23-year-old man from Burma who has two sisters and one brother. His youngest sister studies in the sixth grade, while the rest of his siblings work to support the family.

“If Thet has free time, he loves to help cook, but his favorite hobby is playing soccer,” his parents say.

About six years ago, Thet moved to Malaysia to look for a job. He found work as a waiter at a restaurant, but soon began experiencing mild symptoms, such as dry skin. The restaurant owner brought Thet to a hospital, where he was given medication. While medication provided temporary relief, his condition soon took a turn for the worse.

One morning, Thet woke up unable to see anything. He went to the hospital again for diagnostic testing, but the doctor told him they could not find any problems. Thet decided to return to Burma.

Since returning to Burma, Thet’s condition has steadily worsened. His vision has become more blurred, and he often has headaches. He has also developed severe muscle pains. He cannot sit or lay down for long periods of time.

After learning about our medical partner, Thet and his parents traveled four hours to seek proper treatment. Thet’s doctors believe he may have a brain tumor. A CT scan will allow them to develop an effective treatment plan. $414 will cover the cost of this scan, scheduled for December 14.

Thet says that if his condition improves, he wants to go back to work in Malaysia so he can help support his family.
