February 5, 2017

Ma Nyein is a dressmaker who lives with her son and extended family in Burma. In early 2016, Ma Nyein had an accident in her home, which resulted in chronic, severe pain on the left side of her head and numbness in her left eye. She was no longer able to work as a dressmaker. After the use of prescribed painkillers did not help, she consulted an eye surgeon. After numerous diagnostic procedures, Ma Nyein was found to have a large cyst on her optic chiasm.

The optic chiasm is the point in the brain where the optic nerves cross. The optic nerves are pathways that carry information from the eyes to the brain. The cyst on Ma Nyein’s optic chiasm needs to be surgically removed.

On February 8, Ma Nyein will undergo a cyst excision procedure. She needs help to fund this $1,500 surgery.

Ma Nyein says, “I am excited to have surgery and get well soon. I plan to start sewing as soon as I recover from this illness.”
