Sok Ang is a tenth grade student from Cambodia. Her favorite subject in school is math, and she hopes to become an accountant when she grows up.
Three months ago, Sok Ang developed a chalazion in her right eye, causing her irritation. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. She often experiences lowered confidence and eye irritation.
Sok Ang traveled for one a half hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On May 8, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Sok Ang’s symptoms should improve. She needs help raising $175 to fund this procedure.
She says, “I hope that after surgery, my eye will no longer bother me or make me worry.”
