Ei is a 35-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with her husband in Mae Taung Village, Mae Sot District, Tak Province. She is a homemaker and her husband works at a construction site and on his landlord’s farm.
Since 2013, Ei has been experiencing pain in her pelvic area as well as in her back. She has been diagnosed with endometriosis. She has been advised to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus and cervix. If left untreated, Ei’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Fortunately, Ei is scheduled to undergo her hysterectomy on November 22. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Ei says, “Without money it is impossible to receive treatment and there is no opportunity to get a job easily.”
