Cho underwent treatment of a spinal birth defect.

Cho’s spina bifida was successfully treated without any surgical complications. Since Cho’s surgery, both mother and daughter are very happy. In fact, Cho was so happy that the protrusion had been removed that, after the surgery, she showed all her friends that she no longer had a tail and proclaimed to them, “I am now beautiful.” Cho’s mother is very grateful to the donors for helping her daughter receive this surgery. She also wanted to thank BCMF for their kindness and all their assistance throughout this process.

Cho is a two-year-old girl who lives with her parents and older sister in Burma.

Since birth, Cho has had a mass protruding from her back. Eventually, she was diagnosed with spina bifida, a birth defect that prevents a baby’s spinal cord from developing properly.

To avoid future complications, Cho will receive treatment at our medical partner’s hospital, Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, on March 30. The procedure will cost $1,500. Surgeons will operate to correct the spinal malformation.

Cho’s mother says, “I want my daughter to grow up well and go to school in the future.”
