Aung received surgery to remove the tumor behind his eye.

The operation to remove the tumor behind Aung’s eye was a success and he is doing very well!

“I am very, very happy. I can’t even express my gratitude,” Aung’s mother says. “The life my son has is thanks to the donors and staff. I cannot wait to take him back to our village where he will be able to go to school.”

Since the tumor has been removed, Aung is no longer experiencing headaches and he does not become fatigued as easily. He no longer feels tired at night and is so happy that the growth has been removed. Aung is looking forward to returning home and to being able to go to school with his friends once more.

“I really want to go back to my village,” Aung says. “I have been away for a long time and I really want to meet with my sisters and friends.”

Meet Aung, an eight-year-old boy from Burma! Our medical partner, Burma Border Projects (BBP), tells us, “Aung really enjoys school and likes studying; he says that he would like to become an eye doctor when he grows up.”

Aung has been fighting cancer and previously had his eye removed to prevent tumor spread. The tumor has now spread to his eye socket and needs to be removed.

“The tumor currently causes Aung physical and mental discomfort,” BBP explains. “After his eye was removed it was hoped that his condition would improve, however, the spread of the tumor has been very difficult for him and his mother. It is physically painful and also causes him a headaches and becomes tired easily.”

For $1,500, Aung will receive the necessary surgery to remove the tumor. Aung’s mother says, “I really want my son to continue with his education – I never had the opportunity and have had to work a physically difficult job my whole life. I am completely determined to get him treatment no matter how many surgeries he needs.”

Let’s help Aung get healthy again!
