Sweet underwent a mass removal procedure.

Sweet is now active, and she does not cry as often as before the surgery. Her mother is extremely happy to see Sweet playing and smiling.

Her mother says, “I would like to say thanks to the donors and everyone else, who helped my daughter in receiving treatment. Without your support, our family will not be able to afford paying for her treatment.”

Sweet is a four-month old baby girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandparents, uncle, and two aunts. They live on a family farm.

Sweet was born at home with the assistance of a traditional birthing assistant. Shortly after birth, Sweet’s mother noticed that she had a mass near her tailbone. At ten days old, Sweet was taken to Mae Tha Rain Clinic. The medic prescribed a medication and they stayed in the clinic for one month for monitoring. Sweet is able to sleep and eat well, but the mass is growing at a steady rate. Sweet experiences no pain related with her condition but the mass is increasing in size, and it makes Sweet’s parent worry.

Sweet’s family sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. She is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on September 18. The family is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.

Her mother says, “I am worried to see my daughter’s mass is increasing in size but I am also happy that she will receive surgery soon. I am excited and looking forward to see she will be cured and become healthy after the surgery.”
