Rathanak is a 32-year-old seller from Cambodia. He has 5 siblings: 4 brothers and 1 sister; he is the youngest child in the family. All of Rathanak’s siblings are married and he lives with his mother, as his father has passed away. In his free time, Rathanak likes to exercise, help his mother to do house works, listen to music, and play games on his phone.
In November 2017, Rathanak was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture on the right femur and left forearm. His family took him to a government hospital for surgical treatment, where he had plate screws on his left forearm and a nail on his right femur. The hardware that remains in his forearm and femur causes him discomfort, risks future infection, and needs to be removed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On February 5th, Rathanak will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230.
Rathanak shared, “I hope my fractures will now completely heal after the hardware removal. I’m looking forward to returning to normal physical activity and going back to work.”
