Due is a 26-year-old farmer from Burma. He is married and has a one-year-old son. They live with family in Hlaingbwe.
In 2018, Due noticed a lump on his chest. A CT scan revealed that the mass was cancerous and that it needed to be removed. With the help of Watsi donors, Due underwent a successful surgery in September of 2019 to remove the mass. A biopsy confirmed that the mass was cancerous and Due received chemotherapy for six months.
Now, Due’s doctors want him to undergo another 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 help doctors assess his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Due’s CT scan and care, scheduled for June 18.
“I was never in pain, nor did I suffer from headaches or dizziness when I underwent chemotherapy. I can do household chores, but I am not sure whether I can lift anything heavy. However, I am very grateful and happy that I am healthy again because of your support,” shared Due.
