Thoung underwent a CT scan.

Unfortunately, the scan revealed a cancerous ovarian tumor. While our medical partner’s staff urged that she have the tumor removed, Thoung does not wish to undergo any further surgery.

“I don’t want to have surgery; I just want to go back to Burma. My mother-in-law told me to use traditional medicine, so I will go back to my village in Burma and follow her advice. Thank you so much for everything,” said Thoung.

Thoung is a 36-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her husband and parents-in-law. Her husband, a day laborer, is the only family member who is working and supporting the family. In her free time, Thoung likes to clean her house and look after her parents-in-law.

Last month, Thoung started to experience chest pain and vomiting. As her symptoms became more severe, she developed pain in her lower abdomen. She may have a tumor in her abdomen.

Doctors want Thoung 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 Thoung’s CT scan and care, scheduled for March 6.

Thoung says,“I really need to recover soon to be able to take care of my family again.”

Evans

Evans works hard as a motorcycle taxi driver. He's the second-born in a family of five and had to drop out of school in grade 8 after his parents were unable to pay his secondary school fees. He opted to take a “Boda boda” (motorcycle taxi) job so that he could support his siblings and his children. Evans has two children that he works hard to provide for and he hopes to get married in the future. Now, he worries about not walking again. He is a hardworking and industrious man who makes ends meet for his young children. Two days ago, Evans sustained a traumatic right femur and tibia fracture after he was involved in a road traffic accident. He was rushed to the hospital for x-rays. Because he had an open wound on his femur, Evans was taken to the operating room for emergency washout surgery. A cast was placed and he was admitted to the surgical ward as doctors plan for his care. Evans is unable to walk or lift his right leg due to the fractures. He is worried that he'll continue lying in the hospital bed in a lot of pain. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH) can help. On September 7th, Evans will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). Evans will heal and be able to work. He'll be able to fend for himself and help out his family and children. AMH is requesting $1247 to fund this procedure. Being single and without a proper job, Evans has very little to help him undergo this surgery. He has come out to ask well-wishers to help him raise money for his surgery so that he can walk again and continue supporting his family. Evans says, “If I could be walking now, I could be out there looking for a job and supporting my family. I have faith that I will walk again."
