Hla is a 43-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with her husband, daughter and son in a village in Thailand. They fled from across the border in Burma seven months ago because of fighting in their area. She used to be an agriculture day labourer but stopped working a month ago since her condition is worsened. Her husband is also an agriculture day labourer and her son is a student.
Two years ago, Hla felt a small mass in her breast. The mass was not painful so she need not seek treatment. A few months ago, the mass started to increase in size and became painful. Currently, Hla still feels pain and feels stressed about her condition and also worries if her condition can be treatable or not.
Fortunately, Hla sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. She is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on September 11th. She needs $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
Hla said, “I am very happy that I will be able to receive surgery soon. I hope that I will be able to work again after my surgery.”

Hla underwent life-changing mass removal surgery.
Before surgery, Hla felt pain and constant stress about her condition. She had to stop working since her condition worsened. After surgery, Hla’s condition is significantly improved. She is no longer in pain, and she can eat and sleep well. She feels happy and her family is happy with her for the treatment she received. She no longer worries about her condition after the doctor told her that her condition is not a cancer. She is able to do daily household chores like cooking and washing clothes. In the near future, she plans to work as an agriculture day labourer.
Hla said, “I am very happy, even more than I can explain. I feel released from worry and feel relaxation without pain. I would like to say thank you very much to all the donors who helped pay for my treatment cost. I can’t imagine life without your support, and I can’t imagine how my life would be without your support. Thank you very much to BCMF and all the Watsi donors for your great support.”
