Ar Kar is a 14-year-old boy from Burma. Currently, Ar Kar’s eyes are sensitive to light and bright lights hurt his eyes. He cannot see far and he sometimes has a headache. His mother has already noticed that Ar Kar’s eye is gradually getting bigger. His mother is worried that his eyes will continue to increase in size.

Doctors want Ar Kar to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $814 to cover the cost of Ar Kar’s MRI and care, scheduled for July 5.
