Myint underwent bladder surgery.

He no longer feels pain and can sleep comfortably.

He says, “If donors and BCMF did not help pay for my treatment, I would have to put my family in debt. But now, I am very happy that I received free treatment. I wish BCMF and their donors’ work will be more successful and may you be able to help more patients in the future.”

Myint is a 29-year-old healthcare worker from Hlaingbwe Township, Karen State, Burma.

Myint was diagnosed with urinary and kidney stones in late 2017. In early 2018, Myint underwent laser treatments at the hospital for his urinary stone and kidney stone. About a month ago, he had back pain and he visited the clinic. A medic did an ultrasound and found another stone in his bladder.

Now, Myint is scheduled to undergo surgery to remove the stone on September 12. He needs help raising $1,500 to fund this surgery.

He says, “I was worried because I don’t know what was going on. Now, I feel relieved that the stone will be removed. I am very grateful to all the donors who make this treatment possible for me.”
