Tin (BB) underwent tumor removal.

She does not cry as much and is happier. She is still in the hospital receiving chemo because the biopsy of the mass was cancerous. Fortunately, she has no new symptoms and is getting healthier. Her mother is happy to see her daughter improving.

Tin (BB)’s mother said, “I am very happy because I don’t have to worry about my daughter again and I hope that she will be fully recovered after she finish all her treatment.”

Tin (BB), a 14-month-old girl from Burma, was born with a large teratoma, a tumor, protruding from her groin area. The teratoma is about half her body size. Tin (BB) already had one surgery for her teratoma. However, for her last follow up, the doctor did an ultrasound and found an abnormal mass in her big intestine.

At first, the doctor said the tumor was big and too dangerous to operate. However, the doctor injected the tumor, reducing its size. On October 5, Tin (BB) will undergo surgery to remove the tumor. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, requests $1,500 to help fund the treatment.

Tin (BB)’s mother says, “I am worried for my daughter and I hope that the surgery will be successful and she will grow up well like other children.”
