Saroem is a ninth grader from Cambodia. She has three siblings and enjoys spending time with her family around the house. In the future, she would like to be an English teacher.
She has a congenital disease called neurofibromatosis and has developed a contracture on her right hand. This limits her ability to write, eat, and complete everyday tasks.
Saroem traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 6, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a contracture release procedure. Now, Saroem needs help to raise $417 to fund this procedure. We are also fundraising for her mass excision procedure.
