Yamin underwent a CT scan.

Yamin underwent a computed tomography (CT) scan in December 2018 at Mae Sot Hospital. Unfortunately, the CT result showed that Yamin has multiple masses which are likely to be brain tumors or cancer. Thank you so much for your support of Yamin and her family.

Yamin is a 13-year-old girl from Thailand. She lives with her family, and her parents work in a garden as day laborers. Unfortunately, her family cannot afford to send her to school.

One morning, Yamin woke up with headache and neck stiffness. After one week, she had the same symptoms again. Since then, her condition has worsened. Her doctor suspects that she has a brain tumor.

Doctors want Yamin 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 her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Yamin’s CT scan and care, scheduled for December 20.

Yamin says, “I like to do make-up to others and sew clothes for my toys. I sometimes try to put make-up on my youngest sister, who always refuses, but my younger brother likes to wear make-up and some of my stuff, such as skirts and dresses. When I grow up, I want to be a make-up artist and fashion designer.”
