Say received a CT scan.

Say received a CT scan, and the results showed a dermoid cyst in the region between her eyebrows. The doctor plans to surgically remove the cyst on April 24. Say is excited to have surgery soon and plans to return home after she recovers. Thanks to the CT scan, Say will receive the tailored treatment that she needs.

“I am shy to have this cyst, and I believe that after surgery, the cyst will go away from me and I will no longer feel shy to go out with friends,” says Say.

Say is a 14-year-old girl who lives in Burma with with her two parents, three sisters, and brother. All of Say’s siblings go to school, and Say herself is in grade six. During the rainy season, her parents grow rice on their farm. In the dry season, Say’s parents work as day laborers and save for their children’s school fees.

Say was born with a sac of tissue extending through a defect in her skull, a condition known as an encephalocele. She does not experience pain or other symptoms, but she has an abnormal growth on her face between her eyebrows. After being examined by a medic, she was referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF).

Say will undergo a CT scan on April 8. This scan will give her doctors information about her condition and allow them to form a treatment plan. Her family needs help to pay for this $693 procedure.

Say says, “I would love to finish school and become a teacher.”
