Sorann is a 35-year-old teacher from Cambodia. She teaches elementary school students, and loves her work very much. She has four siblings, and her parents are farmers who live outside Phnom Penh. Outside of school, she loves to walk in nature and to take photos on her phone.
Three months ago, Sorann developed nasal polyps, which are noncancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passage. As a result, she experiences nasal obstruction, loss of smell, and sometimes headaches. It is difficult for her to breathe and sleep.
When Sorann learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for an hour and a half seeking treatment. On March 10th, doctors will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After recovery, she will be able to breathe more easily. Now, she needs help to fund this $291 procedure.
Sorann shared, “I have a hard time sleeping and it makes it more difficult to do my job well. I hope that I can get better so I can be the best teacher I can be again.”
