Khant Kyaw is a 17-year-old Burmese man currently living in Thailand. He lives with his father and younger brother.
Until recently, Khat Kyaw worked as a guesthouse receptionist and concierge. His father was unemployed, so Khant Kyaw supported his three-member family. His younger brother is a student in fourth grade.
About a month ago, Khant Kyaw started to experience abdominal pain. He lost his appetite and stopped working. He visited the hospital, where medics found a mass in his abdomen. On November 15, he underwent a CT scan to diagnose his illness. Khant Kyaw needs help to raise $414 to fund this diagnostic procedure.
“I am very depressed, but my father always tries to cheer me up,” explains Khant Kyaw. “He said I’ll get well soon and be back to normal life.”
