April 26, 2019

Mu Lu is a 40-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her family in Thay Ka Tay Village, Kawkareik Township, Karen State. She is a homemaker.

Five months ago, Mu Lu started to experience problems with the right side of the top of her throat, when her right salivary gland became swollen. Then the pain worsened, and she had ringing in her ear. She tried to cure herself with traditional medicine, but the pain never disappeared.

Doctors want Mu Lu 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 $414 to cover the cost of Mu Lu’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 26.

Mu Lu said, “When I got better, I want to go back to my village and live with my family happily. I can help them by cooking and feeding the pigs or chickens. When the animals are mature, I will sell them to pay back my debt.”
