Sing is a fifth grade student from Cambodia. She is the oldest of five siblings, and enjoys reading books in her free time. She hopes to become an accountant when she gets older.
Three years ago, Sing developed nasal polyps, noncancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passage. For this reason she experiences nasal obstruction, headaches, and pain. She finds it difficult to breathe and she becomes easily distracted at school.
When Sing learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 13th, doctors will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After recovery, she will be able to breathe more easily. Now, she needs help to fund this $267 procedure.
Sing’s mother says, “I hope that my daughter’s condition will improve after her surgery and that she will able to concentrate at school.”
