Tha Zin is a 21-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, three brothers, and three sisters in Pha-An, Karen State. She likes school but has had to stop attending due to her symptoms.

Tha Zin first noticed her symptoms in 2014. She started to have difficulty breathing, especially while lying down or sleeping. She also experienced nausea and vomiting after every meal. She underwent surgery for a benign tumor on her face at our medical partner’s care center, Chiang Mai Hospital. She felt a lot better after her surgery, but now she feels that her symptoms have returned.

Doctors want Tha Zin to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $469 to cover the cost of Tha Zin’s CT scan and care, scheduled for February 1.

Tha Zin says, “I just want to recover and flee from the disease.”
