Ohn is a 36-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with her husband and four children.
Diagnosed with gallstones, Ohn cannot lift anything heavy because doing so causes a painful pressure in her abdomen. Often, she has a hard time standing up, and she can hardly walk.
Ohn has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Ohn’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put him at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Ohn is scheduled to undergo her biliary obstruction repair on June 11. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Ohn’s procedure and care.
Her husband says, “My wife is now feeling disheartened as she is in poor health and has to live far from her family members…If she is fully recovered, I will be extremely happy.”
