Nan Htet is a 16-year-old student from Thailand. He lives together with his mother and older sister.

About 18 months ago, Nan Htet suddenly became sick and started to vomit. He went back home to rest, but at night he continued to vomit. The next morning, his mother took Nan Htet to a nearby Burmese clinic, where he was examined and given several intravenous injections and oral medications. However, his condition declined further and he started to feel strong dizziness. That night, he had a seizure and became unconscious. His mother was terrified and called an ambulance, which brought Nan Htet to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH), our medical partner’s care center. Still unconscious, he was admitted into the intensive care unit (ICU) and treated with antibiotics. Overall, he was in a coma for 46 days.

Doctors want Nan Htet to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $469 to cover the cost of Nan Htet’s CT scan and care, scheduled for August 14.

Nan Htet’s mother says, “Nothing matters for me unless my son becomes healthy again.”
