Aye received life-changing gynecological surgery.

Aye’s surgery to remove the benign mass on her cervix was successful. “After surgery, Aye feels better as she is not feeling pressure in her lower abdomen and her back pain has disappeared,” our medical partner, Burma Border Projects, explains. “She can resume normal activities and contribute to the family. Now, Aye will return to her work on the farm, growing corn and other crops.”

“I want to say thank you so much to the donors who made this surgery possible,” Aye shares. “If they lived close to me, I would like to offer some of my farm crops as a small token of my appreciation.”

“I am always thinking about my condition and really worry about it,” shares 46-year-old Aye. “I can’t eat and sleep well. I want to get better soon and want to help my family.”

Aye lives in Burma with her husband, who works as a day laborer. Aye currently lives with a leiomyoma - or benign mass - on her cervix. This causes her pain, bleeding, and discomfort.

“Aye and her husband didn’t have enough income [to pay for Aye’s treatment] so they tried to go and work in Bangkok to be able to support their two sons, and they left their two sons with their grandmother,” shares our medical partner, Burma Border Projects (BBP).

BBP continues, “Aye couldn’t work anymore because of the pain so she came back to Burma. She said she doesn’t have medical card and the cost of the treatment is so expensive for her in Bangkok. She then heard about a local clinic through her friend and made a trip there. The midwife there examined her and told her that she has a mass in her uterus that need to be removed.”

Surgery to remove Aye’s mass will cost $1,500. With this procedure, BBP says, “Aye should be able to go work to her work and can help her family. She should be able to generate income and support her two sons.”
