Sopheara is a 16-year-old student. He is in the ninth grade and has a younger sister in the eighth grade. Sopheara’s father is a construction worker, and his mother works in a garment factory.
Sopheara was in a car accident that fractured his left femur and tibia. After the accident, his family took him to a local hospital; upon review, the doctors referred him to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for specialized treatment. Currently, Sopheara is experiencing severe pain and difficulty walking.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help Sopheara heal. On February 15th, he will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will allow him to walk easily again upon recovery. CSC is requesting $465 to help fund this procedure, which is also subsidized by Sopheara’s co-pay that his family was able to gather.
Sopheara shared, “I hope I can heal and walk easily again so I can return to school.”
