Ka Nyaw is a 28-year-old woman from Burma. Three days ago, she was involved in a motor bicycle accident and had sustained head trauma. She complained about severe headache and dizziness.
Doctors want Ka Nyaw 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 her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Ka Nyaw’s CT scan and care, scheduled for May 23.
Her husband says, “We had already discussed plans to start a family. We want to save up money to start a small business and for our children’s education.”
