San is a 63-year-old woman who has an uncomfortable gynecological condition and was referred to Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), our medical partner. She is originally from Burma but moved to Thailand after her husband passed away. She has seven children.
Two years ago, San started to feel tightness around her lower abdomen. She began to experience troubling gynecological and urinary symptoms. At our medical partner’s clinic, she was given oral medication and sent to the hospital for some investigative testing. Our medical partner’s doctors concluded that she needs to have surgery.
In the last few weeks, San has been experiencing bleeding and pain. She cannot walk long distances or sit for too long. Fortunately, on April 6, San will undergo a hysterectomy to remove her uterus. Our medical partner, BCMF, is requesting $1,500 to fund her treatment.
