Ngwe is a 72-year-old retired woman from Burma. She lives with her daughter, her son-in-law, and her two grandsons.

Around 12 years ago, Ngwe started to have pain on the right side of her abdomen. She also developed pain in her back. Doctors want Ngwe to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Ngwe’s CT scan and care, scheduled for June 19.

Ngwe says, “I would like to play with my grandchildren once again. I would also like to make traditional Burmese bamboo mats.”
