Ma Aye is a 57-year-old grandmother who lives in a small village in Burma. She has seven adult children and three grandchildren. Her husband passed away ten years ago, so she now lives with her daughter and son-in-law. The family grows rice and livestock on their farm, which provides enough food to eat, but brings in very little money for other necessities.

Recently, Ma Aye was diagnosed with a large, painful mass in her uterus. The growth is pressing on her bladder, causing intense discomfort and sapping her energy.
