Ny is a 44-year-old bread seller from Cambodia. He has four daughters, and enjoys listening to the news on the radio.
Two months ago, Ny developed a chalazion in right, causing him irritation and burning. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. He experiences eye obstruction and cannot see clearly.
Ny traveled for two and a half hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On March 6th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Ny’s symptoms and quality of life should improve. He needs help raising $187 to fund this procedure.
He said, “I hope that the burning in my eye goes away and the irritation will stop so I can see again.”
