Tungaa's Brain Surgery
Organized by: KirstyJoy Nomch
As some of you know a few weeks ago Bilguun's sister was diagnosed with a cyst in her brain. Her symptoms are fairly severe and she will most likely require surgery. Because of the nature of the surgery she cannot access adequate health care in Mongolia but will need to travel to Thailand to receive care there. Bilguun plans to travel to Mongolia the beginning of April to help with her travels, they will go to Thailand and undergo extensive testing and then if it is still considered the right path will have the surgery by the end of April. The Neurosurgeon in Thailand who has agreed to see her has an excellent reputation and a western education. Although healthcare is much more affordable in Thailand it will still be quite expensive, the current estimate given to us by the hospital in Thailand is 20,000 dollars. Tungaa is a single mom who works hard to provide for her son and to take care of her family. Any contributions will be most appreciated.
