Mu Lu is a 40-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her family in Thay Ka Tay Village, Kawkareik Township, Karen State.
Fives month ago, Mu Lu started to experience problems with the right side of the top of her throat, when her right salivary gland became swollen. Then the pain worsened, and she had ringing in her ear. The ringing was so loud that she could not hear people properly when they talked to her. She tried to cure herself with traditional medicine, but the pain never disappeared.
Mu Lu sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. she is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on May 21. She is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Mu Lu says, “I am scared to undergo the surgery but there is no other option for my condition to get heal. I hope that after surgery, I will be no longer in pain.”
