Sweet is a nine-month-old baby girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandparents, uncle, and two aunts.
Shortly after birth, Sweet’s mother noticed that she had a mass near her tailbone. The mass is growing at a steady rate.
Doctors want Sweet 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 Sweet’s CT scan and care, scheduled for March 20.
