Kyi is a 20-year-old young woman from Thailand. She lives with her husband in Naung Khyo, Mae Sot Township, Tak Province. She and her husband are from Bago Division, Burma but moved to Thailand for better job opportunities two years after they were married.
Four months ago, Kyi has been experiencing troubling gynecological symptoms. She has been diagnosed with ovarian cysts. She has been advised to undergo an oophorectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her ovaries.
Fortunately, Kyi is scheduled to undergo her oophorectomy on September 4. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $913 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Kyi says, “After I have surgery, I will rest for awhile and then return to work with my husband.”
