Win is a 46-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his wife and two sons in a village in Kyain Seikyi Township in Karen State. His elder daughter is a health worker where she works at a clinic in another village in Burma. His two youngest sons are students. Both he and his wife are a subsistence farmers. In his free time, he sometimes helps his communities with building a bridge or road as much as he can.
In January 2020, he developed a painful urination, itchiness, and also difficulty urinating. He feels like something is blocking his urinary and also feels stomach pain in his right side.
Doctors want Win 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 his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Win’s CT scan and care, scheduled for February 28.
Win said, “I keep myself strong and I hope if I receive proper treatment I will be better.”
