Htoo underwent successul excision of an enlarged lymph node.

After the surgery, Htoo no longer experiences facial pain and itching. He is happy, has an increased appetite, and feels like playing again. He will be able to return to his school for the coming year.

Htoo’s mother is very happy with the treatment that Htoo has received.

“I’m so happy that I can see my son healthy,” she shares.

“I would also like to say thank you to all the donors and BCMF’s staff for covering the surgery for my son,” Htoo’s mother continues. “Your help and support have made such a difference to us. May the Lord bless you and fulfill your needs. I will remember you in my prayers. I would like to say a big thank you again for the sake of my son.”

Htoo is a ten-year-old boy from Burma. He lives in a village with his parents and his three siblings. Htoo attends school and is in the third grade. In November of 2016, Htoo received treatment for abnormal swelling in his lymph nodes.

At this time, he underwent a CT scan funded by Watsi. The scan was used to investigate swelling in his lymph nodes, an organ that is part of the lymphatic system and is essential to a properly-functioning immune system. Physicians diagnosed him with lymphadenopathy, a disease of the lymph nodes. They have scheduled surgery to remove the mass identified in the CT scan on January 30.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Htoo’s surgery. After his surgery, the mass will be sent to a laboratory for biopsy testing to determine if it is benign or cancerous.

Htoo’s mother says, “I am excited. I’m happy my son is getting surgery now because I would have never been able to afford it myself, and I wouldn’t know where else to look for the right treatment. I hope he will be more healthy after surgery. I love him so much. I have decided to support him in whatever he wants to be in the future.”
