Choy is a 20-year-old football player from Cambodia. He has three brothers and one sister, and takes care of his mother during the daytime.
When he was nine, Choy had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his right ear to perforate. For this reason, Choy experiences fever, discharge, itchiness, headache. He cannot hear clearly, and this affects his ability communicate well with others.
Choy traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 06, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
He says, “I hope that surgery will help to improve my hearing and stop the ear discharge.”
