Hser underwent an MRI scan so doctors can diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Hser received an MRI scan on August 4th, and the results showed that he had subacute osteomyelitis, which means that the bone in his upper left arm was inflamed. On August 10th, he underwent surgery to treat this condition. His surgery went well, and he has now returned to school and can play with friends again as he did before his injury!

Smiling, Hser shared: “I am happy now, and I want to become a medical person when I grow up.”

His mother also shared her gratitude and said: “Thank you very much to those who supported my son’s operation and treatment and took care of my son.”

Hser is an 11-year-old student from Thailand who is in sixth grade. He lives with his parents and three brothers, all of whom attend school, in a refugee camp. His father is on the school committee at the camp, and his mother occasionally works as an agricultural day laborer outside of the refugee camp. Hser enjoys going to school, attending church, and praying. In his free time, he also likes playing games on his parents’ phone.

This past June, Hser slipped on the mud under his house and landed on his left arm and shoulder. Although he initially felt fine, he developed pain and swelling in his left arm and shoulder a week later. He was diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder and a fractured upper arm. However, after visiting another hospital, his doctor suspected he might have osteomyelitis, or inflammation of the bone, in his left upper arm.

Doctors want Hser to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $814 to cover the cost of Hser’s MRI and care, which is scheduled for August 4th.

Hser shares, “I would like to become a pastor when I grow up.”
