Ni is a 38-year-old mother of two sons and wife. Her children are currently in school, while she works with her husband grow corn on their land at home. Ni also cares for her mother-in-law, who is paralyzed from the waist down.

In August of this year, Ni began experiencing stomach pain. She visited a clinic in her village and was prescribed medication to alleviate her symptoms. Ni’s condition did not improve, so she visited a private clinic. Her treatment was once again unsuccessful.

Ni’s neighbor suggested she seek treatment at another clinic, and there, she was diagnosed with gallstones. She was referred to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH), a Watsi care center where doctors recommended she have surgery. She will need $1,500 to fund her procedure, a biliary obstruction repair scheduled for September 12.

Ni is looks forward to being healthy again so she can provide a bright future for her sons.
