Long is a 31-year-old security guard with one son and one daughter. In his free time, he likes to watch TV and read magazines.
In June, Long was injured in a motor vehicle accident. He was diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury, meaning that the nerves connecting his spine to his arm were damaged. After visiting a Khmer traditional healer, his symptoms did not improve. Long was in pain, and he could not use his right arm.
After learning about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), Long traveled for three hours with his wife to reach CSC for treatment. On November 1, surgeons performed a nerve transfer surgery in his right arm. After recovery, he should be able to use his arm easily. Now, he needs help to fund this $450 procedure.
