Nyo underwent cardiac surgery.
Compared to before, Nyo feels more active and healthy. She is able to eat and sleep well, and she can sweep the floor and walk longer distances without feeling tired. She no longer experiences any of her previous symptoms but sometimes she feels like the muscles in her chest are tight due to her surgical wound.
Nyo is incredibly happy that she has received successful surgery and her family is grateful for her treatment. Her neighbors were very surprised to see her return to their village healthy. In the future, after she has fully recovered, she will dedicate more time to religious work and she will look after her children and the household chores.
Nyo said, “I’ve gain more weight and my skin has also become smooth, unlike before. The people in my village told me that I was lucky. They were surprised to learn that I met this organization who helps patients like me. Without your help I could never afford to receive help and I don’t know what I would have done. Your support was very beneficial because we face financial problems and we didn’t have to worry about finding money for my treatment. I will always remember your help and I will pray for you to live a long and healthy life. Thank you to all the donors and doctors who supported me.”

Nyo is a 50-year-old woman from Burma who lives with her husband, her son, and her daughter in a village in Shwe Bo Township. Nyo’s husband is a subsistence farmer while she is a homemaker. Her son sells bus tickets at the bus station in Taunggyi Town, Shan State and he sends some pocket money to his parents at home. Nyo’s husband sometimes work as a construction day laborer.
Nyo was diagnosed with a heart condition that involves a malformation of her mitral valve, the valve between the left atrium and left ventricle. This valve controls the flow of blood, but certain conditions may cause blood to flow backward or the valve to narrow. Currently, she is tired and cannot walk long distances. She also has chest pain and a poor appetite.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund a mitral valve replacement for Nyo. The treatment is scheduled to take place on March 16th and, once completed, will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably.
Nyo said, “I am very upset that I have to suffer this kind of condition.”
