Vannak is a 19-year-old college student studying law. He lives at home with his parents, who are famers, and helps them with their work in his free time. He has two younger siblings in high school as well. In his free time he likes to play soccer and cook for his family.

Three months ago, Vannak developed an obstruction in his nasal passage due to a deviated septum inflamed by allergies. He has had had chronic nasal congestion for a long time, but lately he has had difficulty breathing and has felt lightheaded. He has had a difficult time focusing on school work, and is worried this condition is holding him back.

Doctors at Children’s Surgical Centre now plan to perform a nose reduction procedure in order to clear the obstruction and open up his nasal passage. He will be able to breath easily and will no longer experience any dizziness. He will also have an easier time dealing with allergies in the future. Vannak needs your help raising $289 to fund the cost of his surgery.

Vannak shared, “I am excited to feel good when I am breathing. It has been so long since I could breath easily through my nose so I am so thankful for this procedure.”
