Janice joined Watsi on March 15th, 2019. One year ago, Janice became the 4991st member to automatically support a new Watsi patient every month. Since then, 1,000 more people have become monthly donors! Janice's most recent donation supported Thearo, a young man from Cambodia, to fund spinal surgery.
Janice has funded healthcare for 1 patient in 1 country.
Thearo is a young man from Cambodia. Ten years ago, Thearo's spine started to curve, which is progressing with age, making it difficult to sit in school for long periods, and causing a lot of discomfort. Surgery can help correct the position of his spine, and prevent further worsening of the condition. Fortunately, surgery is scheduled for March 14. Our medical partner needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure. Thearo hopes to go back to school and become a teacher one day. He says, "I hope that after surgery, I will no longer have any pain and will be able to go back to school without any discomfort."
