September 5, 2022

Hla is a 43-year-old woman, living with her husband, son and daughter in a village in Thailand. Seven months ago, Hla and her family were forced to flee Karen State, Burma, because of the fighting that was taking place there. Both Hla and her husband worked as agricultural day laborers, but due to Hla’s health, only her husband is working now.

Two years ago, Hla felt a small mass in her left breast. The mass wasn’t painful, so she decided not to seek treatment. A few months ago, the mass started to increase in size, and it became painful. In addition, puss has developed at the site of the mass.

Doctors want Hla 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. It is hoped that this scan will help doctors diagnose her condition, and enable them to formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Hla’s CT scan and care, scheduled for September 5th, at Mae Sot General Hospital.

Hla said: “I feel so sad that I cannot work since my condition worsened. I have to depend on my husband’s income, which is hardly enough for this month. Thank you to all the donors who are willing to help pay for my expensive scan.”
