Daw Thet is a 45-year-old woman from Thailand. She used to work as a rubbish collector, but she no longer works.
For four months, Daw Thet has been experiencing pain in her lower left abdomen. She has been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. She has been advised to undergo an oophorectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her ovaries.
Fortunately, Daw Thet is scheduled to undergo her oophorectomy on June 11. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $913 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Daw Thet Oo says, “I want to recover and spend time with my family. I still want to do housework and help my family with cooking, cleaning and washing.”
