Tin underwent a CT scan of a possible tumor.

Our medical partner shared an update with us that Tin underwent a CT scan at Mae Sot Hospital and was able to return to hear her CT results about one week later. The doctor explained to her that she has a type of cancer called cholangiocarcinoma, which had already spread to her other organs. The doctor shared that because of this and the late stage of her cancer, unfortunately they could not recommend further treatment. Tin returned home immediately following this diagnosis to be with her family and plan for their road ahead. The medical staff in Mae Sot have shared their support for Tin and her family.

Tin is a 63-year-old widow from Burma. She lives alone in a village, close to her eldest son’s house. Since her husband passed away, she works as a subsistence farmer growing vegetables. If she has extra vegetables, she either sells them or gives them as a gift to her friends and neighbors.

Two months ago, Tin started to suffer from pain in her abdomen. She also felt a small lump in the left side of her abdomen, coughed up blood, and her skin turned slightly yellow.

Doctors want Tin 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. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Tin’s CT scan and care, scheduled for February 4th.

“I pray to lord Buddha that the doctor’s suspicion [that I have a pancreatic tumor] is not true,” said Tin.
