Aye is a seven-year-old girl from Burma. She is a first grade student, and she lives with her grandmother, aunt, uncle and four cousins while her parents work in Bangkok, Thailand. In early 2019, she began to experience seizures multiple times every night.
Doctors want Aye 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 Aye’s CT scan and care, scheduled for February 26.
Her mother says, “We are very worried for our daughter. We asked leave from our work so that we could be with her.”
