Bros is a construction worker from Cambodia. He has three brothers and four sisters. He likes to go for walks, watch TV, and hang out with friends in his free time.
Five months ago, he was in a motor vehicle accident that caused paralysis of his right arm. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his right 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 use his arm and he cannot work.
Bros traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 10, 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, “After surgery I hope I don’t have any more pain and I can use my arm again.”
