Aye underwent successful meningocele repair surgery.

Three days after her surgery, Aye is doing well. Her medical condition no longer stops her from engaging in physical activities and she is quickly learning how to sit. She is also now able to sleep well and has much more energy during the day.

“I am happy that my daughter finally received surgery and I don’t know how to express my feeling right now,” Aye’s mother says. “I am thankful to the donors, doctors and BCMF staff for helping my daughter. All I want for my daughter is to grow up well and to go to school. I want her to attend medical schools and become a medical doctor. Once again, billion thanks to the donors and all the people involved in my daughter’s treatment. Without your support, I could not do anything. Now, I am relieved from my worry. Thank you so much for saving my daughter’s life.”

Aye is a 13-month-old baby girl from Burma, who lives with her mother, grandparents, and two uncles.

When Aye’s mother was seven months pregnant with her, an ultrasound revealed a small mass on the back of her head. Aye was diagnosed with a meningocele - a small, fluid-filled cyst, which protrudes through a gap in the spine.

Over time, Aye’s mother has noticed that the mass on her daughter’s head has gradually grown. The mass hurts when touched, which causes Aye to cry often and sleep poorly. Aye had a CT scan of the mass done through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), on January 26, 2017, and the doctors are now eager to operate on her.

The surgery to drain the cyst of excess fluid will prevent further infection, swelling, and damage to the spinal cord.

Back at BCMF, Aye is now scheduled to undergo meningocele repair surgery on May 19. Her family is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Aye’s operation.
