Htwe received surgery to remove cysts on her neck.

“Before Htwe had surgery, she had begun to feel fatigue and developed a cough, she could also not lie down horizontally and was suffering from much distress,” explains her doctor at Burma Border Projects. “After surgery she is no longer experiencing any of her previous symptoms and has recovered well. Now that her treatment is over, she will be able to take care of her children and her niece, to whom she is the only caregiver. Htwe says she relishes this responsibility and will continue to do her best.”

“I am so happy now. I used to feel discomfort especially when I lie down, but now I don’t experience any more breathing problems,” shares Htwe. “I am very grateful to everyone who helped me get treatment and gave me a second chance so I can continue taking care of my children. I feel much more energetic now, and will do my best as a single mother.”

“In April 2014, Htwe began to feel fatigued and developed a cough,” shares our medical partner, Burma Border Projects (BBP). “Since then she has struggled to sleep horizontally, and has egg shaped mass on her neck that makes it difficult for her to breathe.”

Htwe is a hard working, 52-year-old mother from Burma. She is the sole caretaker of her five children, and also cares for her niece. One of her children is currently undergoing cardiac treatment.

Htwe has developed a cluster of benign masses on her neck that interfere with her ability to sleep and breathe. $1500 will fund the removal of her masses, which have been diagnosed as benign.

“Treatment will make her a better mother and provider to her children,” shares BBP. “Without the stress of her condition she will be happier and can think about the future with less stress and worry.”

“My kids need me. What will my kids and niece do without me? I need to get treatment for them,” Htwe adds.
