Than is a 49-year-old woman who lives with her father in Burma. She works as a fruit vendor and takes care of her father.
Than’s health problems started over ten years ago, when she noticed that she had breathing problems. She tried to use traditional medicine to treat herself. At first, Than felt better, but in 2017 her health worsened. She cannot breathe well, and gets tired in hot weather. She underwent a heart examination and was told that she requires heart surgery, which is scheduled for November 20.
Than said that in the future, “I want to work as a fruit vendor again and continue caring for my father.”
Watsi is requesting $1,500 to help fund Than’s treatment.
