Nyo is a 33-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her parents and siblings in Taung Kaung village, Kakhine State. Nyo sells snacks and is the sole provider for the family.
For three years, Nyo has been experiencing troubling gynecological symptoms. She also began to experience back pain and cramps in her lower abdomen. She has been diagnosed with a uterine myoma. She has been advised to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus and cervix. If left untreated, Nyo’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Fortunately, Nyo is scheduled to undergo her hysterectomy on September 25. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. Once recovered, Nyo will be able to return home.
Nyo says, “I really want to be healthy again so I can go back to work and save money.”
