Vireak is an 18-year-old student. He is the elder brother to two younger sisters. Both of Vireak’s parents work in construction. In his free time, Vireak enjoys reading books, exercising, listening to music, and helping his family with cooking and taking care of his younger sisters.
Vireak has been diagnosed with lumbar scoliosis. He has a curved spine causing back pain and has difficulty walking and sitting.
On November 12th, surgeons at the Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) will perform an orthopedic repair surgery on Vireak to alleviate his scoliosis pain. Our medical partner is requesting $1,500 to fund his spinal surgery. Once recovered, his quality of life will significantly improve and he will be able to return to life as normal.
Vireak shared, “I hope after my surgery my back gets better and I can have a straight spine and be free of discomfort.”
