Htwe is a 6-month-old baby boy from Burma. He lives with his parents, two older sisters, and other extended family members.
When Htwe was born, he had low glucose level and was admitted at the hospital for 18 days. He was doing fine until a few weeks ago when he started to have infrequent seizures.
Doctors want Htwe 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 $414 to cover the cost of Htwe’s CT scan and care.
Htwe’s mother said, “As a mother, I’m very sad for my son. I look at him with pity. I’m worried he won’t grow up to become a normal kid like others his age.”
