Kriyoeur is a 28-year-old hairdresser from Cambodia. He has one daughter and likes to watch You Tube and use Facebook.
When he was ten years old, Kriyoeur had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his left ear to perforate. For this reason, Kriyoeur experiences discharge, hearing loss, and tinnitus. He has a difficult time communicating with others as the ear drainage affects his hearing ability.
Kriyoeur traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 5, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his left 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 after surgery, my hearing will improve hearing and the ear discharge and tinnitus will stop.”
