Aye is a seven-year-old girl from Burma. She is a first grade student, and she lives with her grandmother, aunt, uncle, and four cousins while her parents work in Bangkok, Thailand.
Aye was recently diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which has caused fluid to build up in her brain, after a CT scan. The scan also showed a small mass in her brain.
Doctors want Aye to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Aye’s MRI and care, scheduled for March 5.
Her grandmother says, “I am very worried for my granddaughter especially that they find a mass in her brain.”
