Aye lives with her son and grandson in Thailand. She is a part-time volunteer with a local organization and only receives pocket money for her work. Her son and grandson are students. During her free time, she shared that she likes to read the Bible, help with church activities, or do household chores.
Since 2021, Aye has been experiencing occasions of abdominal pain. The pain became constant in March, and Aye finds that she has a poor appetite, and difficulty sleeping and going about her day now.
Aye was diagnosed with bile duct stones, and underwent an emergency procedure, during which a tube was inserted into the right side of her abdomen, to drain the bile.
Doctors now want Aye 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 should help doctors better formulate an appropriate treatment plan to ensure she heals.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Aye’s CT scan, which is scheduled for April 10th, at Mae Sot General Hospital.
Aye said: “I was worried about my treatment cost because I cannot afford it. But now, I am happy. If I recover, I will go back and work again to support my family.”
