Cho is a 53-year-old Burmese woman. She lives with her husband in a small village and owns and operates a small snack shop. Her husband works as a construction laborer.
In 2014, Cho began experiencing pain in her left pelvic area. One of Cho’s neighbors told her about a local medical clinic, and she decided to seek treatment there. There, she was given pain medication and told to return if she continued to have symptoms.
Cho’s pain resumed in 2017, and she was then diagnosed with cancerous fibroids in her uterus. Thankfully, Cho was referred to a Watsi medical partner, and they will be sponsoring her treatment.
Cho will need $1,500 to cover a hysterectomy procedure. After surgery, Cho is expected to live pain-free and continue working. She plans on giving back to the monks at a local monastery and would like to live a long happy life.
