Moo Naw received life-improving gynecological surgery.

The surgery to remove Moo Naw’s uterine fibroids was a success. With the removal of these painful, non-cancerous growths, she no longer has migraines or abdominal and back pain. Already she is sleeping and eating much better than before, and she is expected to make a full recovery.

Both she and her husband are happy and much less stressed now that she has had the surgery. She can return home and, once she’s fully healed, help her husband work on their farm. “I am so thankful to all the donors,” Moo Naw said. “I will never forget them.”

Moo Naw is a 48-year-old woman from Burma. Although she has no children of her own, Moo Naw lives with her husband, her mother, and her 16-year-old nephew on a small farm. Both her and her husband tend to their rice paddy fields, but Moo Naw’s husband also works as an agricultural day laborer, which Moo Naw used to do until she fell ill.

Moo Naw’s symptoms first presented themselves when she was three months into her first pregnancy. She began to have headaches and became incredibly sensitive to light, to the point where she was unable to open her eyes without experiencing migraine-like symptoms. She developed severe back pain and experienced joint and muscle aches, in addition to heavy bleeding.

After blood tests and an ultrasound, our staff informed her that they saw a mass in her uterus and she was diagnosed with uterine fibroids.

Moo Naw is not able to work on her farm or as an agricultural day laborer due to her symptoms. Let’s help Moo Naw get back on her feet so that she can help support her family.
