Yan Pai is a 16-year-old boy from Burma. He left school one year ago because his family could no longer afford tuition. Since then, Yan Pai has been working as a day laborer.

For a few months, Yan Pai was experiencing pain in his leg. He tried to continue working, even taking a new job in a furniture shop. Recently, however, the pain grew so severe that Yan Pai found walking difficult and he began using crutches. X-rays showed an abnormal growth in his leg.

Yan Pai was referred to a Watsi medical partner for further investigation. He received an MRI on October 17, 2016. The MRI results will help doctors make a diagnosis and plan treatment.

Yan Pai’s mother supports the family, but her income as a day laborer does not cover his medical costs. She has already sold a piece of land, and Yan Pai is sad that his condition is affecting his family. The family needs help to fund his $814 MRI.

Of the future, Yan Pai is hopeful. “I want to be a businessman someday,” he says.
