Kyi is a 26-year-old young woman from Burma. She lives with her sister, brother, an aunt, and two cousins in Kyike Bon Village, Hlaingbwe Township, Karen State. She looks after her two little cousins and also takes care of the household chores.
In August, 2018, Kyi has been experiencing lower abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with a uterine mass. She has been advised to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus and cervix. If left untreated, Kyi’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Fortunately, Kyi is scheduled to undergo her hysterectomy on October 29. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Kyi says, “The only thing I need now is to recover from my illness.”
