Theavy is a 31-year-old factory worker from Cambodia. She has two brothers, two sisters, and enjoys listening to music, cooking, and watching television in her free time.
When she was seven years old, Theavy fell from her bike and hit her head on the pavement. Since the age of twelve, she started developing a tumor-like growth on her left cheek where she fell, which has been diagnosed as fibrous dysplasia. This condition can weaken the affected bone, sometimes leading to fractures and other pain and discomfort.
Theavy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, and surgeons at CSC will perform a tumor excision procedure to help her feel more comfortable and confident. Now, she needs help to fund this $606 procedure.
Theavy shared, “I hope that I will feel better after my surgery and that my face will look symmetrical again.”
