Win is 54-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her father, sister, brother-in-law and two nephews. She usually cares for her father and looks after him.
Three years ago, Win started to experience abdominal and back pain. She has been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. Currently, she suffers from pain in her lower abdomen. She also feels dizzy, has back pain, and cannot sit for long periods of time.
Doctors want Win to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Win’s CT scan and care, scheduled for March 18.
“When I get better, I want to look after my father full-time and give him all of my attention,” said Win.
