Ma Kyan received surgery to remove painful uterine fibroids.

The surgery was a success!

“Previously, Ma Kyan was suffering from heavy bleeding due to multiple masses inside her uterus,” explains her doctor. “After having surgery to remove the masses she says that she is pain free and doesn’t experience any abnormal bleeding. She will now return to work in the factory and support her children and her husband who have helped her throughout the course of her treatment.”

“I would like to say thank you to all the donors, I am very thankful to everyone who was involved with my case,” says Ma Kyan.

Ma Kyan is 32-year-old mother of two. She has two daughters, aged four and eleven. Ma Kyan lives in Thailand now, but is originally from Burma. She had to move to Thailand to find a job, and she now works in a textile factory. Her daughters stayed behind in Burma, and they live with their grandparents.

Ma Kyan has a mass growing in her uterus. It is the source of a considerable amount of pain, and also causes her to faint occasionally. She told our medical partner, Burma Border Projects, that she feels depressed when she thinks about it, and fears for her overall health.

Ma Kyan earns about $40 a month, which is spent entirely on food, her daughter’s school fees, and on her accommodations in Thailand. She simply cannot afford any healthcare costs, so she relies on pain medication instead to keep going. The medication offers temporary relief, but does nothing for her long-term.

Let’s work together to raise the $865 needed for her surgery. It’ll give Ma Kyan the chance to lead a more normal life, and will allow her to focus on her goal of moving back to Burma to reunite with her daughters.
