Tha Mee is a 19-year-old wife and mother from Burma. She lives with her husband, her son, her parents, two brothers and a sister. In her free time Tha Mee likes to cook and wash.
Tha Mee has a gallstone and suffers from pain in her back and waist. She has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Tha Mee’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Tha Mee is scheduled to undergo her biliary obstruction repair on April 4. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Tha Mee’s procedure and care.
Tha Mee says, “If I finish surgery and feel better, I will go back home and take care of my son.”
