Mya is a 15-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her mother, sister and great-grandmother in Chaung Thaung Village, Kawkareik Twoship, Karen State.
Mya has been diagnosed with an ovarian tumor. She has been advised to undergo an oophorectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her ovaries.
Fortunately, Mya is scheduled to undergo her oophorectomy on March 22. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $913 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Mya said, “I would like to study nature and animals in the future. I like reading different kinds of books, watching movies and am also interested in sewing clothes. I sometimes help my mother sell mohinga when I have free time.”
