Bo is a 10-month-old baby boy from Burma. He lives with his family in a village in Hlaingbwe Township, Karen State.

When he was born, his mother noticed a lumbar bump near his spine. The bump grew larger, and his mother brought him to our medical partner’s care center. A medic examined Bo and informed his mother that Bo has a meningocele.

Doctors want Bo 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 formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Bo’s MRI and care, scheduled for August 8.

His mother says, “I hope that my son will receive the treatment for his meningocele and he will be able to grow up well like other children.”
