Chhean is a 26-year-old vegetable seller, with four siblings: three brothers and one sister. He is the second child in his family. Chhean lives with both of his parents, who are farmers. In his free time, he likes playing football, listening to music, drinking coffee with his friends, going for walks, and playing games on his phone.
In 2018, Chhean was in a motor accident that left him with a painful femur fracture on his right leg. After the accident, he went to a hospital, where doctors conducted an open reduction internal fixation of his femur. They used plate screws to stabilize his fracture. Now, the bone has healed and the hardware needs to be removed to eliminate any problems that could be caused by the implants, such as pain or infection.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On January 7th, Chhean will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove the hardware, preventing future complications.
Chhean shared, “I hope that the hardware will be easily removed and the wound will heal quickly.”
