Pav is a barber from Cambodia. He has four brothers. He enjoys watching Chinese films.
Four months ago, Pav was in a motor vehicle accident that left his left shoulder and arm immobile. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He is unable to move his left arm and shoulder.
Pav traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 1, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use his arm again. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $637 to fund this procedure.
He says, “I hope my surgery is successful and I hope to regain function in my arm.”
