Piseth is an eight-year-old student, with one sister and one brother. His best subject in school is reading, and in his free time he enjoys playing football with his friends.
Two months ago, Piseth developed a chalazion, or an inflamed cyst in the tear gland, in his left eye. The chalazion causes him pain, itchiness, and irritation, and it is difficult for him to see clearly and read in school.
Piseth traveled with his father to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On May 20th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Piseth’s symptoms should improve. Now, his family needs help raising $187 to fund this procedure.
Piseth shared, “I hope my eye gets better so I can study easier at school and play with my friends.”
