Chanreth is a 21-year-old, hard working man. He is married and has two daughters. Chanreth’s wife is a garment worker. He enjoys listening to music on his phone.
Three months ago, Chanreth was in a motor vehicle accident that caused paralysis of his left shoulder. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He is unable to lift his arm, and he cannot work right now because of this.
Chanreth traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On October 13th, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use his arm again. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $696 to fund this procedure.
Chanreth says, “I hope after surgery my shoulder will move again. I have a four-month-old daughter that I would like to take more care of once I am healed.”
