Mu is 43-year-old farmer from Burma. She lives with her husband and five children. In her free time she likes to forage for vegetables in the forest with her friends.
She has a gallstone and has burning pain in her lower right abdomen. She also suffers from back pain and sometimes she is not able to sleep or eat well due to the pain.
Mu has been advised to undergo a cholecystectomy, the surgical removal of the gallbladder. If left untreated, Mu’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put him at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Mu is scheduled to undergo her cholecystectomy on March 21. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Mu’s procedure and care.
She says, “I hope that I can get well again so that I can help my husband and my son on our farm.”
