Meet Aye Nay from Burma. He is 65 years old and is a father of five children. Aye Nay works as a rice farmer, but he also farms nuts and durian fruit. He lives with his wife and his daughter’s young family.
Aye Nay is having difficulty breathing. Three years ago, he noticed a mass in his nostril. This mass has grown considerably in the last three months, to the point where Aye Nay can no longer breathe through his right nostril.
Aye Nay went to a local clinic, but he was unable to be treated. He then visited a care center associated with our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). Following several diagnostic tests, doctors have diagnosed Aye Nay with a nasal polyp. They want him to undergo a CT scan. A CT scan will enable doctors to pinpoint the size and location of the nasal polyp.
BCMF has arranged for Aye Nay to have his CT scan on March 13. Due to his limited income, Aye Nay cannot afford to pay, so BCMF is asking for donations to cover the $414 CT scan.
Aye Nay shares, “I want to be able to get well and look after my family.”
