Mu Mu is a 43 year-old woman who lives in Burma with her parents, husband, daughter, and younger brother. Mu Mu used to work as a day laborer, but recent health complications have prevented her from working. Now, she sells dried food and snacks from home. She and her husband support the family. Her daughter recently completed tenth grade and is about to enroll in university.
One year ago, Mu Mu began to experience painful symptoms in a sensitive area. She visited our medical partner, where she underwent an electrocardiogram, an x-ray, blood tests, and an ultrasound. She learned that she had a mass in her uterus. On November 21, she underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy.
This procedure should reduce Mu Mu’s uncomfortable symptoms, which included back pain and difficulty sleeping. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,500 treatment.
