Kyaw Myat is a five-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his family in Ma Gyi Pin Village, Tigyaing Township, Sagaing Division.
Doctors believe that Kyaw Myat has a benign brain tumor. They want Kyaw Myat to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Kyaw Myat’s MRI and care, scheduled for April 17.
His father says, “If possible, I want him to become a teacher.”
