Aye underwent brain surgery.

She feels better after surgery.

Aye’s grandmother said, “Thank you very much to the donors for making this treatment happen for my granddaughter. Without the help of the donors, our family would not be able to afford to pay for my granddaughter’s treatment.”

Aye is a seven-year-old girl from Burma. She is a first grade student, and she lives with her grandmother, aunt, uncle and four cousins while her parents work in Bangkok, Thailand.

Aye was recently diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which has caused fluid to build up in her brain. Without immediate surgery to alleviate the intracranial pressure that the excess fluid is causing, she is at risk of developing severe, potentially fatal medical complications.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund the insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt for Aye, which will drain the fluid that has accumulated in her brain. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 28, and, once completed, will greatly improve Aye’s quality of life.
