Sreymey is a 15-year-old teenage girl from Cambodia. She is the youngest of four siblings and lives with her mother and brother in Kampong Cham province. Her father passed away when she was a toddler. Her mother works as a potato farmer and her older brother is a monk who lives and studies at a pagoda. Her other two siblings attend a nearby school. Sreymey is currently in the 5th grade, and enjoys studying Cambodian history and culture. Sreymey dreams of working in a salon when she grows up. At home, she likes to eat vegetable soup, and she loves spending her free time painting and drawing. Sreymey was born with Escobar syndrome, a rare genetic disorder characterized by multiple pterygia, or web-like skin folds, across joints and other parts of the body. This condition causes muscle tightness throughout her body, affecting both her upper and lower extremities. Her joint mobility is very limited, making it difficult for her to walk and perform daily activities. Because of this, Sreymey is behind several grades in school, but hopes to attend more regularly and focus on her studies. Sreymey was referred by a relative to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). She and her mom traveled for five hours to seek treatment. On June 13th, surgeons will perform a web neck release surgery to improve the function of her neck and head movement. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is seeking assistance to fund the $462 needed for Sreymey's surgery and physiotherapy. Sreymey said, "I hope I can return to school as soon as possible."
