Linn is a 30-year-old man from Burma. In May 2017, he fell down the stairs at his house and hurt his right leg. Since then, his leg became very painful. A doctor diagnosed him with bone tuberculosis, and he was on medication for 18 months. However, his condition did not improve, so he went to another hospital, where he was diagnosed with a hip problem that needs a surgical intervention.
Currently, Linn cannot walk for more than five minutes. He also experiences pain. Fortunately, Linn learned about our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). At BCMF’s care center, surgeons can perform a total hip replacement to relieve Linn of his pain and allow him to walk easily. Treatment is scheduled for September 11, and Linn needs help raising $1,500 to pay for this procedure.
He says, “I wish I can walk again with no pain in the future. I am very grateful that I will receive help for my surgery.”
