Blee underwent thyroid surgery.

Since her surgery, she feels much better. Her previous symptoms have disappeared.

“I am very thankful to the donors who helped me receive free surgery. Without their help I wouldn’t have been able to afford to receive the surgery,” said Blee. “This is a big help for my family and saved my life also. In the future I will spend my time with my family and I will take care of my grandchildren while their parents go to work. I will never forget the help of the donors for paying for my expensive surgery.”

Blee is 45 years old and lives with her husband, three sons, and one daughter in Karen State, Burma. The whole family, except the youngest daughter, works on their farm, planting rice and raising chickens, pigs, and goats.

About a year ago, Blee visited the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a goiter. She was referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), for a assistance in receiving treatment.

Since she learned she has a goiter, Blee has been very worried that her family might have to spend a lot of time caring for her instead of working. Fortunately, she is now scheduled for thyroid surgery on March 19. Her family needs help raising $1,500 to fund the procedure.

She says, “I enjoy collecting vegetables in the forest and beside plantations. I hope to get healthy soon again in order to help on my family’s farm again.”
