Me Maw received surgery to relieve shortness of breath caused by rheumatic heart disease.

Her doctor says, “Due to Me Maw’s condition she was advised not to have any children because her heart was too weak. Now, when she has made a complete recovery she wants to start a family with her husband. She said even if a baby doesn’t happen, she feels very blessed to be healthy and have such a supportive family.”

When she was younger, in order to help her family, Me Maw dropped out of school and stayed home to look after her siblings while her mother was at work.

Without a high level of education, Me Maw now relies on work to support herself. However, she recently had to stop working when she started experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. Doctors diagnosed her with rheumatic heart disease, a serious condition that is can be fatal if left untreated.

Without an income, Me Maw cannot afford healthcare on her own. But for $1,500, we can pay for her to receive a procedure called a cardiac-mitral valve repair. This procedure will repair the part of Me Maw’s heart which makes sure that blood keeps circulating. Doctors say that she will be able to move around much more easily, without shortness of breath, and hopefully return to work.

Let’s give her a chance to live a normal, healthy life!
