Blet underwent a CT scan.

The results showed a small intracerebral hematoma. The doctors have given her some medication and told her to come back for a follow up in September. During the follow up, the doctor will check whether Blet needs surgery or not.

Belt said, “I would like to say thank you to everyone who helped pay for my CT scan.”

Blet is a 30-year-old woman from Burma who works as a farmer in order to support her elderly parents, daughter, niece, and nephew.

In early June, Blet was hit in the nape of her neck by a tight bunch of bamboo as she was trying to pull the bunch apart. While she resumed working, Blet noticed dizziness and pain three days later when she was eating a snack. She hoped that the discomfort would get better on its own, but, six days later, her pain intensified to the point where she now feels as though her head might explode. Breathing is difficult, her left leg and hand tremble and ache, walking is slow and tough, and her right eye is swollen shut.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to fund a CT scan for Blet in order to properly diagnose her condition. The scan is scheduled for July 4 and, once completed, will hopefully provide Blet with clarity regarding her current symptoms.
