Pyin is a 42-year-old Burmese woman from Mandalay Division in Burma. She is married with four children.
After experiencing high fever and swelling in 2016, Pyin was diagnosed with a disorder of her heart’s mitral valve, the valve that separates the upper and lower left chambers. She needs surgery to fix her condition.
On July 10, surgeons will replace her mitral valve, allowing it to close properly and preventing blood from leaking through. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, requests $1,500 for Pyin’s medical care.
Pyin hopes for a speedy recovery, saying, “I hope to be able to return to work soon, so that I can support my family. I want to be a good mother for my children.”
