Pai underwent a CT scan.

Pai feels a lot better since he received the CT scan. His eye has noticeably reduced in size, and he no longer experiences any pain in his eye.

“Before I came here, I wanted to become a professional soccer player,” says Pai. “Now, after having seen and met so many doctors, I want to become a doctor instead!”

Pai is a ten-year-old student from Burma. He lives with his parents, brother, and sister. His father helps around the house, while his mother works as a shopkeeper. His siblings had to stop attending school when they were younger to help support the family. His brother now works as a daily laborer, while his sister works as a seamstress. In his free time, Pai likes to play football with his friends.

In February, Pai hit his head against a wooden post at school. When he went home that night, Pai vomited and developed a fever and a headache, and his eye started to swell. Currently, Pai is suffering from a severe eye condition and has to cover his eye with an eye shield. His family is really worried about his health and their financial situation.

Doctors want Pai 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 diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Pai’s CT scan and care, scheduled for March 12.

“I want to become a professional football player when I grow up,” said Pai.
