about Saw Ku's recovery.

February 10, 2017

Saw Ku is an 18-year-old student. Four years ago, he developed a tiny growth on his cheek that was not painful or sore. However, the growth grew more serious with time. After investigative testing, he was referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF).

Currently, the mass on his cheek is itchy and uncomfortable. It prevents him from washing his face and sleeping on his side. Furthermore, it also causes him to feel social anxiety.
