SreyPich is an 11-year-old from Cambodia. Her parents work at a nearby construction site, and SreyPich helps care for her two younger siblings when she gets home from school. SreyPich is a bright student whose favorite subject is English. In her free time, she enjoys playing with her friends, and they are really good at jump-roping!
For the last three years, SreyPich has been experiencing frequent nose and throat infections, congestion, coughing, and difficulty swallowing. She often feels unwell, and it can sometimes be uncomfortable to eat. SreyPich was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping her receive treatment. On January 5th, she will undergo a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. During these procedures, surgeons at CSC will remove her tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving SreyPich of her symptoms and helping her live much more comfortably. CSC is requesting $265 to fund this surgery. SreyPich’s family gathered $100 to contribute to her care.
SreyPich said, “After the operation, I hope my throat will get better and I can eat and breathe easily.”
