Esther is a 27-year-old woman who currently lives in Thailand with her husband and their three children. The two older children are in kindergarten, and the youngest is a baby boy who is turning one next month.

In 2010, Esther had an unusually painful backache while traveling in Bangladesh with her husband. She was diagnosed with a kidney stone, however, unable to afford surgery and unaware of the consequences of leaving the condition untreated, Esther did not receive treatment. Her symptoms worsened, and in June, after experiencing shortness of breath, Esther was transferred to the emergency department and administered oxygen. In critical condition, she requires surgery to have her kidney stone removed.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Esther’s nephrolithotomy. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 30 and, once completed, will hopefully spare Esther from future medical complications and allow her to live much more comfortably.
