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.”
