Sean is a 31-year-old food seller–he and his wife were married eight months ago. Sean’s wife is a rice farmer and is currently pregnant with their first child. They live with his parents who are retired and stay at home.
On March 7th, Sean was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture on his right hand. After the accident, his parents took him to a provincial hospital where he received wound sutures and a splint for his right middle and index fingers, however this did not heal his fracture and he still experiences stiffness, pain, and can not use his right hand.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 7th, Sean will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will help him regain use of his hand.
Sean shared, “I hope I can use my hand again after surgery so I can return to selling food and earn more to support my young family and our baby who is arriving soon.”
