Tra is a 42-year-old seafood seller from Cambodia. He lives with his wife of 17 years and their four children. He and his wife work together in a market in Sihanoukville. In his free time he enjoys exercising and playing with his children outside.
Six years ago, Tra noticed a swelling in his neck. It slowly grew in size, and after coming to Watsi’s Medical Partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he was diagnosed with a parotid tumor. The mass makes it hard for him to swallow, and he worries that it will keep getting larger and more painful.
Tra traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 6th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. Now, Tra needs help to raise $231 to fund this procedure.
Tra said, “I hope that my surgery will remove this tumor once and for all, and I can work at the market in comfort. I will not have to worry about losing my income to support my family.”
