Thue is a 40-year-old famer from Burma. Thue lives her husband, three sons, and one daughter. She and her husband work on their farm along with their eldest son. They also raise chicken and pigs, which they sometimes sell if the crops were not good.
Two months ago, Thue started experiencing abdominal pain, and she could not sleep and eat well. She lost consciousness several times because of the pain. She visited to the hospital, and the doctor diagnosed her with a gallstone.
Thue has been advised to undergo a cholecystectomy, the surgical removal of the gallbladder. If left untreated, Thue’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Thue is scheduled to undergo her cholecystectomy on April 18. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Thue’s procedure and care.
Thue says, “After I recover, I want to look after my children again and take care of my household.”
