Saw Moo underwent a CT scan to guide his diagnosis and treatment.

Saw Moo received his CT scan and doctors have diagnosed him with Lymphoma, which is a cancer that begins in the immune system. The medical team is working to help him have comfort and oxygen support as his condition is advanced and Saw Moo’s father has taken him back home now to be with family.

Saw Moo’s father shared “I want him to be at home… Thank you to all the donors for being willing to help him.”

Saw Moo is a 6-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his parents, his four brothers, and a sister in Bago Division, in southern Burma.

Saw Moo is a primary school student. His mother is a homemaker and his father is a subsistence farmer. They also raise chickens and pigs, and sell a pig when they need cash. In his free time, Saw Moo loves to play with his siblings and his friends.

Two months ago, Saw Moo’s mother noticed that his abdomen was enlarged. Since then, his abdomen has continued to increase in size. When his parents asked if he was in pain, he always replied he was not. Recently, his father noticed that his legs and groin area had become swollen.

Doctors want Saw Moo 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 his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $693 to cover the cost of Saw Moo’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 27th.

Saw Moo’s father said, “I am the only one who supports my family and now I need to travel with my son so that he can receive treatment. I am worried that because of this I will not be able to start planting [rice] in time. I hope that my son will recover well and grow up to become an educated man so that he can serve his community.”

Su

Meet Su, a 10-year-old girl, living with her mother in Thailand. Because her parents are no longer together, Su sometimes also goes and stays with her father. Both of her parents work for local community organizations. When Su has free time, she enjoys drawing pictures, and playing with her friends. Su was born with clubfeet and a dislocated hip. After her birth, she received corrective surgery in Chiang Mai, with the help of our medical partner, BCMF. During her last visit to the hospital after her surgery, the doctor told her mother that she would need to bring Su back to the hospital after she had outgrown the special, corrective shoes she wore for her clubfeet. Due to financial constraints, issues with documentation, and the Covid pandemic, Su's parents were never able to bring her back to the hospital. In June 2022, Su started to experience pain in her right foot, whenever she walked for longer than 10 minutes. And, for the first time, she also began to feel pain in her right hip when she walked. The doctor at Mae Sot Hospital diagnosed her with a dislocated hip, and referred her to Chiang Mai for further treatment. Doctors in Chiang Mai want Su to undergo an MRI, which will help them to reach a definitive diagnosis, and to formulate a plan of treatment. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting your help to cover the $814 cost of Su's MRI and care, scheduled for October 18th, at Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. "I want my daughter to become a doctor in the future so that she can help others who also suffer from clubfeet," said Su's mother.
