Nyo is a 44-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her husband, daughter, and son in Myawdddy Town, Karen State.
Two years ago, Nyo experienced a sense of tightness in her back. One night in the beginning of March 2019, she started to experience severe pain in her upper abdomen. Doctors want Nyo to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Nyo’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 17.
“I really want to see my children,” says Nyo.
