Lisa is a smart three-year-old girl with three older brothers (they’re a lot to keep up with after all!). She also enjoys playing with toys at home and watching cartoons.
One month ago, Lisa developed a chalazion, or an inflamed cyst of the tear gland, in her right eye. The chalazion causes her swelling and itchiness and it is difficult for her to see clearly.
Lisa traveled for two and a half hours with her mother to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On June 8th, surgeons at CSC will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Lisa’s symptoms should improve quickly, and now her family needs help raising $187 to fund this procedure.
Lisa’s mother shared, “I want her eye to get better soon because I worry about her so much right now.”
