Thida is a 9-year-old student from Cambodia. Her parents are factory workers, and she has one younger sister. She is in the third grade at school and her favorite subject is Khmer literature. She likes to read, listen to rock music, and play outside. She also helps her sister with homework.
In May 2020, Thida developed a mass on the left side of her jaw. The mass has grown bigger everyday. As it grows larger, it becomes more painful, and Thida has started having difficulty eating and speaking.
Thida traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 5th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. Now, Thida needs help to raise $231 to fund this procedure.
Thida’s mother said, “I am worried that this mass will be very dangerous if it is not removed. I hope that she can get healthy soon and go back to school.”
