Sok Heng is a 37-year-old homemaker. She is married and her husband works as a taxi driver. Together, the couple has one son and one daughter, who are both in public school. When she is not caring for her family, Sok Heng enjoys listening to the news on her phone.
Last month, Sok Heng developed a chalazion, or an inflamed cyst of the tear gland, in her right eye. She experiences burning, itchiness, and irritation, and her eyelid is red and swollen. It is also difficult for her to see clearly.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Sok Heng receive treatment. On June 2nd, surgeons at CSC’s care center will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Sok Heng’s symptoms should improve. Now, she needs help raising $210 to fund her procedure and care.
Sok Heng shared, “I hope after surgery my eyelid not be red and itchy. I want to feel better and able to do my housework.”
