Mu Htoo is a 46-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with her husband and one daughter in Bwe Klar Village, Phop Phra District, Tak Province.
Mu Htoo has been diagnosed with a large ovarian tumor. Doctors want Mu Htoo to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Mu Htoo’s CT scan and care, scheduled for May 22.
Mu Htoo says, “It was uncomfortable for me to lie down and I could not sleep or eat because I felt pain around my waist.”
