September 12, 2019

Due is a 26-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his family in Hlaingbwe Township, Karen State. Due is a farmer while his wife looks after their four-month-old son.

In 2018, Due Bay noticed a lump the size of the tip of his thumb on his right breast. He did not seek treatment until the lump slowly increased in size. He then went to a hospital in Hpa-An in early January 2019. At the hospital, he received an x-ray and was told that he would need surgery to remove the mass. Because he had no money to pay for the surgery, he just went home. Currently, the lump on Due’s breast is itchy. Sometimes, he feels like the muscle in his right chest as well as in his armpit are tight. He is very worried about his condition and now he cannot work or carry heavy things. If he tries to carry anything heavy, he feels uncomfortable because of the tightness in his chest and armpit.

Doctors want Due 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 Due’s CT scan and care, scheduled for September 12.

He said, “I miss my son already and cannot wait to see him. I hope that I can receive surgery as soon as possible so that I can return home to see my son and my family.”
